Our focus in absence management
It is common for employees to be absent from time to time. For the employer, the most important thing is to be able to ensure that they know the reason for the absence and to be aware when such absences become too frequent. Thus, changes can be made to accommodate an employee, or simply to have a conversation with an individual who is absent frequently in order to understand what is wrong. Without information, it is quite difficult to have a real impact on absenteeism.
Since absences are inevitable, it is essential to limit the management time related to them. Evidently, the case must be handled, information must be entered and shared with stakeholders, and finally, adjustments must be made to the schedule to replace the absent employee. We are constantly trying to speed up this process by automating the recording of the absence and sending notifications directly to the people in question. The system will then adjust to begin the replacement process.
It should not be forgotten that in any request for absence, or delay, employees are involved in the same way as managers. We believe it is necessary to provide them with a way in order to notify their superiors of the absence quickly and easily. To do this, we offer an automated telephone system, a web page and a mobile application so that they can do it the way they prefer, and especially without delays.
HOW FAR ALONG ARE YOU IN YOUR EFFORTS
TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF I NEED A NEW TOOL
Companies with a large pool of employees, many of whom are part-time young people, often have higher than average absenteeism rates. Moreover, positions that are not so-called "career jobs" are generally less exciting for employees, who are consequently absent more often. This is a problem that can slow down the company's daily operations and generate costs that could easily have been avoided.
The first solution is to discuss the situation with the employee so that it does not happen again, but this technique alone is effective if only one worker is a concern: if it is a larger-scale problem, the best thing is to find a tool that facilitates the replacement process while keeping an eye on each employee's lateness and absences. You will save precious energy and time!
