Make sure you're using your annual leave

16 October 2020

A recent review of annual leave balances highlighted that, on average, employees currently have between 65% and 70% of their annual leave remaining.


Some colleagues have over 75% remaining despite us now being six months through the leave year.

We appreciate that it’s been difficult for those in roles critical to the Covid-19 response to use their leave, but it’s important that everyone makes arrangements to take some time off.

In addition to supporting your wellbeing, we also need to avoid potential issues in accommodating large numbers of employees wanting to take leave at the end of the leave year.

As usual, you’ll be able to carry over of up to five days (pro rata) leave with your line manager’s approval.

Please consider your own wellbeing and make sure you are using your annual leave.
