What are the challenges faced by HR department during the manual leave approval process? 

The HR department of the leadership development company has a policy where employees are expected to plan the leave for whole year in the starting itself. Manual leave approval processes for such bulk approvals can be riddled with inefficiencies and frustrations for both employees and HR departments.

Here are some of the key challenges: 

  1. Time-Consuming: Manual handling of leave requests takes a significant amount of time, from filling out forms and routing them for approval. 
  1. Prone to Errors: Data entry mistakes can occur when manually transferring information from forms to spreadsheets or HR systems, leading to inaccurate leave balances and potential payroll errors. 
  1. Lack of Transparency: With paper trails and email threads, it can be difficult for employees to track the status of their requests, leading to unnecessary follow-ups and frustration. 
  1. Delayed Approvals: Manual approvals can get bogged down by manager’s busy schedules, leading to delays and potentially impacting project deadlines or team workloads. 
  1. Inefficient Tracking: Monitoring team leave balances and ensuring adequate staffing during peak periods becomes a manual burden in a paper-based system. 
  1. Lack of Reporting: Obtaining insights into leave patterns and trends for better workforce planning becomes difficult with manual data.
