It’s Time to Think about Holidays!

11 June 2020

This is an excellent time to start thinking about holidays, as Corona measures are gradually being relaxed and the borders within Europe are reopening.

We will be working from home until 1st September, when the new academic year will be upon us. A break now is highly recommended! 
Holidays offer us the opportunity to rest, leave work behind and give our health a boost. Even if you have no plans to travel, it is important (particularly after the past months) to plan free time for restoring well-being and generating new energy.
Do you have holiday plans in the coming period? Or are you just beginning to think about it? Discuss with your manager how you can make the best use of your  free days in the coming summer months.

Check in Self Service (accessible via Remote Workplace) for the current status of your free days. By managing these hours in Self Service, you can avoid losing leave at the end of the year.

Annual Agreement

Employees with a scientific position, or an OBP position from scale 11, can let their manager know if they want to make use of an Annual Agreement.

An Annual Agreement implies that you reach an understanding with your manager about the results to be achieved, the tasks to be performed, your accessibility and your attendance, on a yearly basis. You are then free to arrange your own time, and do not have to register leave hours in Self Service. Many of our colleagues already use this option, giving them the freedom to organize their own annual schedules. Read more about an Annual Agreement.

If you do not have an annual agreement yet, and you fall into the category cited above, then discuss it with your manager and record it administratively via Serviceplein. The  PSSC Servicepunt can explain how to do this. 


Do you have questions about leave or annual agreements? Are you unable to reach a solution with your manager? Please contact the HR team: Mariska Rol or Désirée Le Large.
