Time and attendance system helps employers manage sickness absence


Time and attendance systems can help employers better manage sickness absences, especially in mission-critical organizations such as the NHS, which is currently facing a major problem in terms of stress-related sickness absence, according to data obtained by the BBC as part of a Freedom of Information request.

Figures suggest that 41,112 NHS staff took sick leave for anxiety, stress and depression in 2014, which is a dramatic rise from 20,207 in 2010. According to the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), which represents healthcare staff, findings reflect in a very accurate manner the “relentless pressure” staff is under.

Emma Mamo, from charity Mind, highlighted the issue of job losses as a result of funding cuts. She said: “The impact of these cuts, through increased workloads and changes to services, is bound to have an impact on staff morale and wellbeing.

“It’s vital that hospitals put in place measures to help promote good mental health at work for all staff.”

Tensor plc time and attendance systems can help managers monitor sickness absences

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.
