2022 Top HR Product PTO Genius

What it is: PTO Genius helps organizations transform the employee experience and boost profitability by unleashing the power of PTO. The AI-powered software helps optimize and automate time off to uncover hidden opportunities to decrease burnout, improve employee wellness and reduce churn. Using machine learning, the Genius platform detects burnout, proactively surfaces favorable times to take leave and makes it easy to convert extra PTO to fund vacations, pay down student loans, contribute to retirement and more. Robust reporting arms clients with powerful insights, analytics and actionable data to discover emerging trends and identify opportunities to further optimize time off.

Why we like it: This is a useful tool for encouraging employees to use their PTO and provides innovative ways to encourage that—from nudges to take a trip and putting some PTO hours to use to help pay for trips or reduce debt. But the most intriguing part of PTO Genius is the way that it can provide interesting and meaningful visibility into burnout and related risks across organizational teams or divisions.
