Simplify holiday management

Not every company has the same rules when it comes to managing paid (or unpaid) time off. Which is why Cezanne HR offers the flexibility you need to follow your own approach.

Reflect your rules

Define as many different holiday plans as you need, each with their own rules for holiday accrual, carry over, and length of service.

Calculate entitlements

Let the system do the maths for you. Cezanne HR copes with even the trickiest of calculations, like how to handle bank holidays for part time workers.

Cope with global differences

Need to accrue paid time off in different ways in different countries? Or take into account local public holidays? Cezanne handles this too.


Route for approval

As requests for time off are submitted, they’ll be automatically routed through your company’s approval process.

Gain visibility

Absences are automatically added to your central Cezanne HR calendar, and can be saved to Outlook and Google calendars.

Switch plans

Easily change plans (e.g. from weekly to hourly), and recalculate holiday entitlements automatically.

See team calendars

So it’s simpler to make sure you’ve got cover

With team calendars you can include your reports, peers or other employees it’s handy to know could be available. Absence requests can also be saved to Outlook or Google calendars if preferred.
