Vacation planning for PHC staff covered under the provincial collective agreements opens October 6, 2021! We’ve pulled together 15 tips to help you as you plan out your 2022 vacation.
By all accounts, it has been a busy year. COVID-19 has added unforeseen challenges to our health system – and you have stepped up in a big way to continue to provide the best care possible for our community. That’s why in the year to come, it will be more important than ever that you take your much deserved vacation. To make scheduling that as easy as possible, People Staffing has put together a list of 15 tips to help you in the process in the new Andgo system this year. For allied staff, decentralized or offsite staffing departments, please speak to your leader for more details.
While taking annual vacation is a treat, planning for it is no easy task. We know that there is a lot of information for you to stay on top of when submitting your requests and there are many inputs to be weighed and calculated.
When we can effectively plan for known vacancies, it helps to better equip us to deal with the unknown that contribute to workload issues for all staff. By planning in advance, you help us provide adequate staffing levels during peak and non-peak vacation periods.
So, please start thinking about what your time off will look like next year and here’s to wishing you a smooth vacation scheduling experience for 2022!
If you have any questions about any of the information above, please connect with your leader/manager, or email the PHC Vacation Planning team at VacationPlanningPHC@providencehealth.bc.ca.
