Tracking and Evaluating Vacation Accruals

 

This article describes how Personio supports you in managing unused vacation days that your employees have accrued. Depending on how detailed you would like your employees' vacation balances broken down, we show you how to display the unused leave days that will be carried over to the following year for each employee.

If you would like to adjust the vacation days that are carried over for your employees, you can do this either by editing the absence balance manually or by importing the accrual balances as of December 31.

 

Creating and Configuring a Custom Report

You can use the Custom Reports to get an overview of the unused vacation days that your employees have accrued at the end of the year. Here, we show you two ways of configuring such a report. The difference is in the number of additional absence attributes that can be added.

The term Absence is used here as a placeholder for your user-defined absence type, for example Vacation or Paid vacation.

 

Option A: Quick overview using the "Point in Time" report type

If you only need to see the vacation days that will be carried over to the following year, this option, which uses the absence attribute "Absence - Balance," provides a quick overview. The attribute shows the accrual balance after absences that have been taken or planned during the year have been deducted. To configure this custom report, do the following:

  1. Go to Reports > Custom reports and click on "Create new report" to open the configuration window.

  2. Give the report a name, e.g. "Vacation carryover."
  3. Select the report type "Point in time," and under "Date" click on the drop-down menu to select the "individual date" 31.12.2020.

  4. Click on "Table columns" to open the drop-down menu and add the attribute "Absence - Balance" and any desired identification attributes.

  5. Apply employee filters as necessary and decide whether you would like to output the vacation accruals of all employees or only of those who are in Active status on the relevant date. Click the "Create" button to confirm.

In addition to the attribute "Absence - Balance," further absence attributes can be added.

 

Option B: Detailed overview using the "Timeframe" report type

This option is useful if, in addition to the remaining accrued leave, you would like to see other absence attributes such as vacation days that the employees have planned or taken, or time periods and carried-over vacation days from the previous year. To configure this report, do the following:

  1. Go to Reports > Custom reports and click on "Create new report" to open the configuration window.

  2. Give the report a name, e.g. "Vacation carryover."
  3. Select the report type "Timeframe" and add, for example, "Current year." Make sure that 31.12. is the end date for the time period.

  4. Click on "Table columns" to open the drop-down menu and add the attribute "Absence - Balance at end of timeframe" and any further desired absence attributes such as "Absence - Entitlement," "Absence - Days scheduled," "Absence - Days taken," and identification attributes.

  5. Apply employee filters as necessary and decide whether you would like to output the leave accruals of all employees or only of those who are in Active status during the timeframe. Click the "Create" button to confirm.

In addition to the absence attributes already mentioned, you can, of course, add a number of other attributes.
