Uncovering absence trends with absence management software can reveal workload imbalances that contribute to excessive turnover or increased absenteeism. For example, changes in the pattern of demand may require additional overtime in some environments, contributing to serious fatigue problems. Industry experts determine that absenteeism rates are measurably increased in facilities with severe fatigue problems. Depending on the industry, this impact could be significant. By having insight into schedules and absence patterns, businesses can take a proactive approach to fatigue management through scheduling to minimize absenteeism and meet business goals.
SumTotal Absence Management capabilities are fully integrated with our Scheduling and Time and Attendance systems to provide a complete end-to-end solution. Requests for time-off can be submitted and routed for approval in advance and automatically accounted for when work is being scheduled. Absence Management takes the next step and provides for the management, analysis and reporting of absenteeism according to organizational policies. The system will track deviations from planned attendance, including such activities as late arrivals, early departures or not working on a scheduled day. The system can then manage such actions as verbal and written warnings, last chance agreements and suspensions or terminations.
