It’s that time of year again! Annual vacation planning for all Providence unionized staff begins on October 6, 2021, and this year, People Staffing is excited to launch the next module in the Andgo scheduling system for Annual Vacation.

The Annual Vacation module replaces the old manual vacation planning process with a new and easy to follow online process. Staff who are scheduled by PHC’s centralized Staffing Office will submit their 2022 vacation requests online in their Andgo employee portal (MySchedule) during the annual vacation planning process that lasts until the end of December.

Using Andgo, staff can log in to their employee portal from work, home or mobile device and submit their vacation requests based on up-to-date information like vacation banks, scheduled shifts and quotas. Now you’ll be able to:

  • Make your choices and submit your ranked requests directly in MySchedule.
  • Access your annual schedule, approved vacation and estimated vacation bank all in one place.
  • See which dates someone with more seniority has already requested and receive notifications when more senior employees’ requests affect your choices. No more guessing games!
  • Have more flexibility around your team’s specific vacation planning process.
  • Receive an automatic email notification when your requests are approved or denied.
