Vacations are a great time to unwind and reset. However, they can also be very stressful. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and forget some important things to do before leaving work. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at five things to do before leaving work for vacation. Let’s get started!

5 Things to do before leaving work for vacation

1. Plan your leave

 It’s good to have a list of your ongoing projects handy, especially so before you leave for vacation. This will help measure the current workloads and anticipate any problems that may occur during the period when you are on leave.

Viewing the leave calendars will also help you get informed if any of your team members will be on leave at the same time that you plan.

2. Apply for leave at least 1 week before

Make sure to apply for leave at least 1 week before leaving. This will give you enough time to wrap up any pending tasks and inform your colleagues and stakeholders. 

3. Inform your team members & stakeholders

Before leaving, it is essential to inform your team members, clients, and other stakeholders about your vacation. This will help ensure that all your projects are taken care of in your absence. 

4. Delegate your task or work

Delegating your tasks or work to other team members will help ensure that your projects are not stalled due to your absence. It is also a good way to make sure that your team is well taken care of. 

5. Set “away” in your calendar

Setting “away”  or “OOO” mode in your calendar will help ensure that you are not contacted during your vacation. This will help you relax and enjoy your time away without any distractions. 

BONUS: Smart leave application for admins and managers

EasyWork’s leave application is a paperless feature where it can be sent out to the admin as CSV reports. Everything is systematically recorded in EasyWork for reference in the future. We also have LeavePro – which with a function that will calculate leave balance automatically.


Following these tips will help you have a stress-free and enjoyable vacation. With the help of smart HR software like EasyWork, you can manage employees’ and your leave efficiently.
