Absence Management Systems
Step one in addressing absenteeism/presenteeism issues, is understanding the existing experience. Absence Management systems provide a uniformed approach to recording absences, regardless of an organisation’s structure.
A comprehensive system will include ‘Day 1 Absence Reporting’. Implementation should breed instant results in terms of deterring potentially disingenuous absences. Over time, the system generates robust statistical information, raising a flag on repetitive absences and trends. Also highlighting any wider departmental or institutional issues.
