Make your staff holiday management a breeze

It’s a familiar scene… piles of paper request forms. Frantic phone calls to arrange cover. Wall charts covered in red pen. Smoke coming out of your ears as the office descends into holiday chaos again…

You just need BrightHR. Our award-winning staff leave planner is straightforward and super-streamlined, so sorting out staff holidays is simple.

So forget confusing calendars, longwinded approval processes, and juggling multiple requests for that same week off in August. Just sit back and bask in your workplace calm. It’s almost like you’re on holiday…

Get accurate holiday calculations at the click of a button

Don’t forget, there’s more to annual leave than just managing the mayhem—there’s a legal element, too. Almost all workers are legally entitled to 5.6 weeks’ paid holiday a year, so you have to get your holiday calculations right…

Our smart annual leave management software does the maths for you (even those tricky calculations, like when staff join the business halfway through the year). Plus, staff entitlements auto-refresh whenever your new holiday year begins.

So, no more figuring out full-time, part-time or variable hour entitlements. Simply enjoy BrightHR's automatic and accurate staff holiday calculations, which you can be confident are right and in-line with the law.

"As a small team of twelve it’s vital for us to keep on top of absence. Using BrightHR makes us much more organised and centralises our processes, making it quicker for us to manage sickness and holidays.” Ella Ferris, General Manager, Nottingham Credit Union
