SMEs require solid integrated personnel management systems
Solid and reliable integrated personnel management systems should become a priority for SMEs struggling to mitigate the effects of shared parental leave, as more than a third (36%) of all small and medium enterprises are not ready to implement shared parental leave (SPL), according to recent research.
A recent survey conducted by law firm Slater and Gordon found that 44% of SMEs are worried about how the regulations will impact their business, while only 14% said they “fully supported” the new regulations as a positive change for business.
Half (50%) said they worried about the time and cost required to hire staff to cover those who take leave. Four in 10 (42%) worried staff without children would be resentful, 36% thought absence would jeopardise their business and 28% had concerns it would negatively impact on staff morale.
Slater and Gordon employment lawyer Jim Lister urged employers to plan ahead. He said a lot of concerns would be “alleviated” if processes are in place as early as possible.
Integrated personnel management systems can help SMEs better manage shared parental leave
The Tensor integrated personnel management systems incorporates 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.
Employees can be allocated different entitlements for absence, with specific rules set for every interval. 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.
The integrated personnel management systems supply the relevant managers with information on employee’s absences through warning email notifications or via hardcopy reports. After that, they would rapidly identify missing employees that are expected to be at work and then inform you via automatic email reporting reports distributed by email.
