Employee Leave management happens to be one of the most important activities of the Human Resources Department encapsulating a significant portion of their time. This is because they have to jostle with several different factors such as government compliance, availability of sufficient staff as well as maintaining the morale of retained employees.

According to a Mercer Survey, in which 473 employers participated:

  • The average cost of employee absence is equivalent to 35% of an employee’s salary
  • Absences result in 19% of net lost productivity per day
  • Indirect costs of absence include: business disruption, overtime, temporary workers, customer dissatisfaction and employee turnover


Amidst juggling of various compliance issues, employee morale and productivity a manual leave management system only adds to the complexity and at the same time doesn’t guarantee an error-free process. This is where an automated full-time leave management software can have the highest impact on an organization. Self-service portals allow employees to apply for leaves on their own and the software evaluates the application against the employee leave balance.

The various benefits of leave management software are:

  • Removal of excess paperwork/spreadsheets
  • Legal Compliance by systematically recording information to be used in case of dispute
  • Tracks  Leave Pattern with Employee Leave management database
