As summer heats up, construction and manufacturing projects do too. However, summertime is also prime time for employees to take vacations. Juggling your busy season at work with scheduling conflicts can be challenging, so take a look at our tips for keeping projects on track during the summer vacation season.
Begin conversations with your team about upcoming projects and the busy summer season before Memorial Day. Allow for them to make vacation plans accordingly. Also, plan to work around your team’s schedules and have necessary employees on the job throughout the season to keep projects on track.
Create a Schedule
Make a shared calendar and ask your team to schedule time off early, if possible. Ask everyone to send reminders prior to taking consecutive days off.
Stagger Vacation Times
Organizing project and employees’ schedules early will avoid worker shortages and help your business run smoothly.
Remind your team to take some time off. Stress the importance of recharging their batteries by spending time with family and friends. Some relaxation and time off will keep your team happy and ready to tackle projects upon their return.
Organization and communication will keep your work operational during peak seasons, while allowing everyone on your team to enjoy a well-deserved summer vacation!
