Apologies for my dim question, I am getting a tad confused on how to work my query out re my holiday accrual.

I have 22.5 days annual leave (pro rata).  I started after the Company leave starts, 1st Jan 2018 & ends in Dec 18.  I joined the Company on 5th Feb 18.

Have taken 5 days already, which leaves 17.5 left for the rest of the year.

If I leave the Company on 14th Sep 18 - how many days holiday am I entitled to get paid for?

Any guidance on calculation would be gratefully accepted.

Good Morning

I'm working for a German company in New Zealand and we are planning a little staff Oktoberfest with German sausages in Oktober. I bought a multicooker but we also want to use it for other things, not just once a year.

Has anybody any ideas/experience? - I was thinking along the lines of maybe having hot dogs every few month.

I would be grateful for any suggestions.

Thanks, Christine

I would greatly appreciate some advice from fellow admin professionals.  I have a colleague who, years ago, used to be my admin assistant - a relatively junior post in our company structure.  She was promoted to EA to the Chief Executive, who happens to be my manager.  Her remit appears to be largely scheduling meetings for him and making travel arrangements, with some minuting of meetings.  She does not work at Board level. 

I am really pleased for her promotion as it is a big step for someone with no real prior experience at this level and limited education and training. What she lacks in experience, she makes up for in willingness and ability with computer packages. 

I can understand her natural pride in her elevation, but it is becoming more a case of "folie de grandeur".  We receive emails from her that are really dictatorial - polite requests are not part of her vocabulary, it seems - and hilarious offers to senior colleagues to "change my days of work so I can support you" at a Board meeting when no support is required nor is it in her remit.  Then she demands recognition for work she has done that in reality someone has then had to re-do as it was done poorly the first time.  I would hate her to fail and feel a certain protectiveness to someone who worked so closely with me at one time, but am cautious of intervening in something that is not really my business.

Have you encountered anything similar?  How did you/would you attempt to improve matters?

Thank you so much.

My recommendation would be to coordinate with a TMC, travel management company.  Travel Incorporated is a good one I have worked with in the past.  They have dedicated agents to the account.  Orbitz for Business is good too.  Shop around and compare their fees, based on the size of your group.

Recently, my manager mentioned that he'd like to figure out how we can help our company's travelers when they're having travel issues during off-hours. He's great about respecting work-life balance, and said that any of us who coordinate travel need to be able to go home at 5:00, and not worry about these issues - but the traveler still needs help, and it could be in the middle of the night.

We use Concur for most of our travel arrangements, so in a lot of cases, the traveler can contact them for assistance. With that being said, there are times when one or more pieces of a trip (i.e., air, ground transport, hotel) may have been booked outside of Concur, so the traveler wouldn't be able to contact them for assistance.

Do you have a suggestion(s) for taking care of our travelers? We care about them, and want to make it easy for them to travel on our company's behalf!
