What’s the true value of an absence management system? Well most absence is genuine. However, managing absence due to sickness requires effective people management policies, which may be helped by a focus on employee well-being. Absenteeism, the causes of absence, absence monitoring and absence management, attendance and sickness are all key indicators of workforce engagement.
Employees who are allowed to sustain an excessive number of absences without any apparent penalty from management can also impact others’ performance. In these situations, other employees can see the concessions the employer is making to retain chronically absent employees, and feel they can also exploit the system.
Actus Absence Management System introduced in March 2017, provides additional support and statistics to help with changing to a continuous performance management culture. Driven by customer demand, the new absence management module enables an organisation to track employee absence, including sick leave and holiday. This simple to use module provides an effective solution to manage all absence types within the organisation.
Using an absence management system to plan holiday and other leave enables line managers to have clear view of available resource to help plan projects and ensure adequate cover is available at busy times. This can be essential in order to maintain performance levels.
Bradford factor scoring incorporated into the module alerts HR to sickness and absence issues. Detailed reports identify absence trends at organisation, team or individual level. Actus Absence System can accommodate part and full time working patterns and international differences such as different bank holidays. If you are tired of filling out spreadsheets, why not take a look at the Actus Absence module?
