Here at WorkSmarter, our users tell us they love our smart online staff holiday planner, which saves them time and simplifies managing employee leave. Whilst we think our online holiday planner service is an excellent choice for growing businesses, we understand not every company is ready to move their holiday requests online just yet.
That's why we've created this completely free staff holiday planner Excel template, suitable for holiday years beginning in 2024 or 2025.
Use the form below to customise the Excel template to meet your needs.
We'll send you a download link to access your custom template.
Open the file in Excel — and you're ready to go!
Our Excel staff leave template is a great way to get started, but we know most growing companies prefer to manage their employee holidays online eventually. When that time comes, we've got you covered.
WorkSmarter offers a smart online staff holiday planner service, too:
Flexible holiday entitlements can be customised across multiple years, and entitlements can be pro-rated for new employees.
A shared online holiday calendar gives your team full visibility in to who's off and when — and syncs with your computer and smartphone calendar, too.
Simple notifications keeps management informed, and highlights schedule conflicts automatically — making the approval process much more transparent.
