KEEP YOUR HOLIDAYS PROFITABLE

  1. 1. KEEP YOUR HOLIDAYS PROFITABLE It’s that time of year again, with Christmas songs on the radio, corporate holiday parties planned, and twinkling lights decorating every nook and cranny of the office. It’s also the time of year when employees are most likely to use up those saved vacation days, often taking off several days to spend time with friends and family during the holiday season. For many businesses, this means that operations will nearlygrind to a halt for almost the entire month of December. However, it doesn’thave to be this way. With the right technology and effort, you can continueto grow your business and hit the ground running in the New Year whileother companies are still sluggishly recovering from their holiday feasts.The most efficient way to maintain momentum over the holidays is to knowwho is available at all times. To do this, you will need to implement a timemanagement system that allows you to track employee activities includingvacation time. Once you know the availability of all of your employees inadvance, you can structure projects around those who will be available.While you may not be able to complete the large projects that you tackleduring your busiest seasons, this is a great time to bundle and completethose smaller, nagging projects that constantly take a backseat to yourmore grandiose initiatives.But what if you have a large number of employees who all take off at thesame time, creating periods of time where there will be absolutely no one atthe office?

You can reconfigure your paid company holidaysaway from those less consistent, one-day company holidays that are notuniversally recognized, and give a larger chunk of time during the holidays,when most businesses shut down. Your employees will appreciate theability to keep their PTO, and you will be able to decrease the number of“dead days” you experience over the year.Happy holidays!Reference Link: http://journyx.com/node/2074
