Recipe Overview

As countless studies have shown, taking time away from work on a regular basis is not only good for an employee’s well-being, but for their overall productivity and happiness when they’re at work as well.

But sometimes, it’s hard for employees to take that much-needed break. Whether it’s from sheer forgetfulness during busy periods at work, or (unwarranted) guilt at the thought of their colleagues having to shoulder a heavier burden while they’re away.

Whatever the reason, it’s important for managers to ensure that their employees are taking the time they need.

With this Recipe, you can stay on top of your employee’s mental wellbeing. When an employee hasn’t taken any paid time off (PTO) in the last 6 months, Rippling will automatically send a reminder to the employee and their manager, urging them to take a well-deserved break.

Want to be alerted at 3 months instead of 6? As with all our workflow Recipes, you can customize this template to your exact needs, including when it should trigger, what the action should be, who it should go to, and more.
