Does anyone have any good practises and ideas on how to allocate holidays fairly. At the moment it is based on length of service – (if 2 people wanted the same weeks off, then it would be granted to the person who had the longest service). We have a small office on site with 7 staff. It would create problems for the business if some of them were to be on holiday at the same time. Obviously, we dont want to incur the cost of recruiting temps from agencies.
Therefore can anyone share any other way of doing this in a way to keep everyone happy as there is nothing more demoralising than being told that you cannot take your holidays.
