The new People Inc. Absence Pack is an optional add-on module for the Employee Self Service that provides additional functionality relating to managing Absence. The pack provides tools to manage the following:

  • Holiday Sale
  • Toil Requests
  • Late notifications

Holiday Buy/Sale Tool

The Holiday Sale tool allows employees to Buy or Sell a portion of their Holidays entitlement for the current holiday year. When a request is submitted by an employee, their manager receives an email notification. The Manager can then log in to the Employee Self Service module to approve or reject the request and the employee is notified accordingly.
