Employee on Leave

Managing employee time-off requests and absenteeism can be challenging in a fast-moving business. 

The first hurdle is finding a simple system that easily allows employees to request leave for approval. 

Managers then need to check leave balances to ensure enough accrued leave exists, think about which other employees are already on leave at the same time to ensure sufficient roster coverage and then, during roster planning, be careful that employees on approved leave are not accidentally put on the roster

RosterElf simplifies staff leave management with our online tools and seamless reporting and approval workflows.

Very Neat Program

5 Star Review

One of our young staff members suggested I look into a 'roster app' instead of sharing an excel spreadsheet with staff. 

RosterElf has saved me time and errors by importing all the hours into Xero. 

The app works brilliantly, and the staff are happy with the easy access to their roster and making time-off requests.
