Managing Holiday Allowances

24th Sep '19

We're trying to stay away from any HR functionality as there are already a lot of great products out there for that. We want to stay very focused on payroll. Managing leave and holiday allowances falls in to that fuzzy space between HR and payroll and it's something some of you have said you really need.
