The Snow is Melting. Are You Prepared for Spring Break and Holiday Coverage?

Its hard to believe as another 2 snowstorms are headed towards the Tri-State area, but the snow is melting, and spring is about 30 days away. That gives HR professionals and managers approximately one month to plan for spring break and holiday coverage.

 

Most schools take a week off in the spring, coinciding with the Easter holiday. Many schools also take off time in late February for President’s Day, whether it is a long weekend or a full week. Moms and Dads will be eager to take this week off from work to be with their children, whether they go visit family, go to a fun theme park or simply enjoy a staycation at home together. But is your hospital prepared to cover these shifts?

 

It is important to let employees have time off if they are due this time whenever it is possible. Taking a vacation or time off is often needed for stress release and is especially good for staff morale. One thing that concerns many employees is having a healthy work/life balance – being unable to take a vacation when they would like to have one may cause some employees to question if this is an environment they want to remain in. Though most employees do understand at times it is simply impractical or impossible for an employer to let everyone or too many employees have the exact same shifts off, hospitals can be proactive and work to arrange coverage to allow for some to have this time off.

 

Now is the time to put a plan in place to prepare for President’s Day weekend/week, Spring Break and all of the spring holidays.
