Last month of the year = leave applications

Employees are allotted nearly 20 leaves per year. However, they wait till the year-end to avail them altogether. Everyone deserves some me time at least once a year. Some employees avail half of their leaves the previous year, leave the other half, and avail them during the next year along with the current year’s leave balance. Although it’s a jackpot for an employee, HR has its hands full. Processing leave applications and getting those approved by the relevant Heads of the department is a hassle in itself. The HR has to plan the leave roster carefully. This process requires full attention.
