2019 PTO/Leave Tracking Must-Dos For Finance And Operations In MS Dynamics
The leave management world has become very complex for mid-size and enterprise companies. This is true also for finance and operations admins who use MS Dynamics. That’s because leave laws have changed. In addition, employees need to understand and take their leave more than ever. As a result, companies need to practice these must-dos. By and large, taking action to improve your leave tracking increases employee satisfaction and complies with all laws in order to decrease their legal liability. It is essential to take these leave tracking/PTO management must-dos for 2019 seriously for the reason that this helps both employees and admins.
2019 Is Different
To begin, 2019 is different. First, employees expect a human touch when it comes to their leave. Why? In general, PTO and leave are personal. The reasons for leave might be exciting. For instance, one might be taking a much-dreamed-of vacation. On the other hand, an employee might need to take time off to care for a sick loved one. As a result, leave tracking relates directly to feelings and morale.
On top of employee morale, companies need to comply with new laws. For instance, companies need to handle requests regarding the FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) differently than they manage sick days. Then, other leave types might include bereavement, parental leave, and even public or company holidays. In addition, there's also disability leave, religious observance, and military leave.
In essence, each kind of leave demands a different method of tracking.
2019 Leave Tracking Must Dos
Our advice for finance and operations managers tracking leave is three-fold.
First, we suggest that you prioritize being human. Having empathy and understanding regarding the complex topic of PTO tracking and leave management is key.
A second suggestion is to be as transparent and fair as possible. How? Establish leave policies. Some organizations do not have specific leave policies in place, which can cause confusion. In addition, a lack of leave policy creates liability for the company. Start by hiring qualified HR staff who understand leave and know which policies will work best for the company. Whether it’s vacation, sick leave, or FMLA, these systems can be complicated, which is why it’s important for an expert to be able to provide advice to management about the best policies to implement.
Lastly, make the most of your MS Dynamics possibilities. If you need something beyond your leave tracking tools in MS Dynamics, learn more about third-party partners.
