    • Or of course relax the rules about rolling over holidays.

      I thought about this, but I don't think that it would work. If you increase the fixed number of days you can take, it buys you one year until people hit the same problem. If you remove the limit then it can cause some people to accrue enormous amounts of holiday that they then (not unreasonably) want to take, possibly in sufficiently dense blocks that it causes some problems. Particularly as now they're more experienced, and more knowledgeable about how the organisation works.

      I'm not convinced about this either. In addition to your observation about more work, it's also the case that people who don't need to take holiday earlier prefer to save it up in case of a "rainy day". Trying to cajole people to take it earlier may not work.
