Sunshine, Sunscreen, and Vacation Scheduling… it’s Summertime!

Jun 12, 2012 9:55:59 AM

It’s that time again - Summer Solstice occurs on June 20th - and, as magical of a time as it is, it is a timely reminder of the pandemonium that summer vacation planning brings. Whether you’re an employer or an employee, allowing yourself some time away from your busy work schedule will benefit your company in countless ways. Upon returning from vacation, you are sure to be fresher, better rested, brighter-eyed, bushier-tailed, and ready to put your clear-headedness to work!

The challenge with summer 

While the advantages of taking vacation time are clear, for employers, vacation planning can be a headache. From scheduling conflicts with multiple employees requesting the same time off, to working around black-out dates and ensuring employees are utilizing their vacation allowances, numerous factors play a part in planning staff vacations. Whether you’ve got a wall full of post-it note reminders, a day planner filled up to every margin, multiple calendars for tracking, or an email request system, you’re setting yourself up for a summer vacation scheduling nightmare. Needless to say, most employers’ organizational methods could use a tune-up to keep up with the chaos.
