Las Vegas, NV (PressExposure) October 25, 2011 -- Pacific Timesheet has announced enhanced support for its Time Off and Absence Management systems, extending its robust time off balance validation rules to prevent so-called "backdoor" time off requests and approvals.
Jim Dickerson VP of Operations explains, "A common problem in organizations with many exempt or salaried employees is a lack of employee compliance requesting time off in a timely basis." Dickerson continued, "In some cases, employees are submitting time off requests long after the fact creating significant request and time off balance validation challenges."
Pacific Timesheet now revalidates all past time off and scheduled future time off requests, essentially invalidating already approved requests when past balances are updated. "One of the issues of many organizations is time off balances get out of sync with reality almost making them irrelevant to employees and supervisors," Dickerson stated. He continued, "Bullet-proof forward validation rules change employee and supervisor behavior significantly over time." In this way, employees' future requests are put into jeopardy by not properly requesting and submitting past time off taken. As Dickerson points out, "What employee wants to jeopardize invalidating this year's Christmas vacation by not properly accounting for time off during the summer?" Dickerson continued, "Manual time off tracking systems are easy to game and these bad employee behaviors will continue persist. Pacific Timesheet will end these kinds of behaviors in one time off cycle."
Additional enhancements added in the last year to Pacific Timesheet Time Off and Absence management have significantly improved supervisor approvals of time off requests. One feature in particular now allows email late notices for time off request approvals to be sent every one or two days until the request is approved. The combination of these features has improved employee compliance with company time off and absence management policies and procedures dramatically.
