Make your staff holiday management a breeze

It’s a familiar scene… piles of paper request forms. Frantic phone calls to arrange cover. Wall charts covered in red pen. Smoke coming out of your ears as the office descends into holiday chaos again…

You just need BrightHR. Our award-winning staff leave planner is straightforward and super-streamlined, so sorting out staff holidays is simple.

So forget confusing calendars, longwinded approval processes, and juggling multiple requests for that same week off in August. Just sit back and bask in your workplace calm. It’s almost like you’re on holiday…

Get accurate annual leave accrual calculations instantly

Don’t forget, there’s more to annual leave than just managing the mayhem—there’s a legal element, too.

Almost all permanent workers in Australia are legally entitled to 4 weeks’ annual leave each year (and that’s before we look at those confusing industrial instruments that might entitle them to something different), so you have to get your holiday calculations right…

Our smart annual leave management software does the tricky calculations, automatically working out accrued leave. Plus, staff entitlements auto-refresh whenever your new holiday year begins.

So, no more figuring out fixed or variable hour entitlements. Simply enjoy BrightHR's automatic and accurate staff holiday accrual calculations, which you can be confident are right and in-line with the law.

Your staff holiday booking system in four simple steps:

Using our employee holiday tracker is easy. Here’s how it works:

  • checkYour staff use BrightHR to add a new holiday request and submit it at the click of a button.
  • checkThen you, the employer, get an instant notification of the new holiday request.
  • checkBrightHR flags any holiday clashes, to help you avoid being understaffed.
  • checkAnd you can approve or decline the holiday request on the go.
