Employee Absence Management

Help with employee absence management


From experience, we know that a major concern for employers is how to handle absence. Short-term absence (sick leave) can be disruptive and unfair on other staff burdened with extra work. By introducing return-to-work sickness interviews and measuring tools, as well as training managers in using them, we can make a significant difference.

It’s important to note that long-term employee absence may well be due to an underlying issue caused by a disability. In these circumstances the individual is protected from workplace discrimination. Working with occupational health professionals, we can find reasonable adjustments and plan phased returns. And if this is not possible within a reasonable time-frame, terminate the employment legally, allowing you to recruit again.

Advanced and easy-to-use systems

Employee timekeeping can be a significant concern for employers. Especially in businesses that depend on a clocking-in system. Having nothing in place, or a weak solution, can encourage lateness and absenteeism, reduce productivity, cause stress to managers and affect employer-employee relations.

We can offer a hi-tech solution. It integrates seamlessly with your business and can be operated over multiple sites if necessary.

All employee data is stored on a secure server. It means the information recorded is safe and secure and can be easily used for payroll.

The system can be configured to allow staff to clock-in in six advanced ways:

  • Smartphone app
  • Phone
  • Fingerprint
  • Facial scan
  • Swipe card
  • Internet

All of the data in the system is stored in the cloud in real-time. It is accessible online, anywhere, at any time. There’s no need to install software, it’s a straight-out-of-the-box solution without the IT fuss that can distract you from the day-to-day running of your business.
