Companies report rise in number of false absenteeism cases under investigation
False absenteeism can potentially cost employers a considerable amount of time and expense, and can put additional stress on colleagues, causing poor morale. For this reason, most companies try to prevent it from occurring, and this is specifically where solid and reliable time and attendance and workforce management systems can be put to good use.
According to the latest Labour Force Survey statistics more than 131 million days are still being lost to sickness and absence every year in Great Britain alone. Furthermore, a survey of 1,000 British employees suggests that almost 60 percent of those surveyed had pulled a ‘sickie’ in the last three years.
Often, false absenteeism is based around finance where an employee is either found involved with secondary employment, running a business or being involved in supporting a family business.
Tensor Time and Attendance Systems – high value, user-friendly solutions designed to combat absenteeism
Tensor plc supplies an extensive range of solutions designed specifically to help employers thoroughly monitor and manage absence, with our flagship WinTA.NET integrated workforce management solution incorporating a dedicated Absence Planning and Entitlement Management feature.
Our comprehensive, yet user-friendly software comes pre-loaded with graphical calendar charts that provide a colourful way of viewing an individual’s or a department’s absence records.
Each employee can be allocated different entitlements for absence such as annual leave or allowed sickness. As absence is booked and taken, the remainder available for each entitlement is updated. Entitlement formulae are used to calculate more complex entitlements calculated on a rising scale based upon length of service.
WinTA.NET supplies the relevant managers with information on employee’s absences through warning email notifications or via hardcopy reports. After that, the system would rapidly identify missing employees that are expected to be at work and then informs you via automatic email reporting reports distributed by email.
