SMEs find themselves bogged down with HR regulatory requirements which can be overwhelming for both the employer and employee. In an effort to ensure a better understanding of these regulations; Zigolaunched this software to allow employees to track their leave and apply for leave. If the employee is eligible for leave; it will accepted and a balance of remaining leave days will be provided. If the employee is not eligible for leave; a reason will be provided alongside the leave they have available. Each category of leave is designed for different circumstances with different number of days-off allowed. Once a company commences using the system; they define their HR policy, specify the types of leave available to each employee and can easily track how often their employees take leave.
This automated system will assist employers to understand their leave trends, make the necessary changes and encourage staff to further understand this aspect of their contractual obligations.
