Absence Management is the process used by HR departments to track, manage, and reduce absences throughout the organization. In today’s HR workplace, this is typically some form of software or customized spreadsheet to track various types of employee absences and leave.
Absence management means tracking and managing all lost work time. This will require accumulating data from the various sources – disability benefits, payroll and timekeeping systems, workers’ compensation and/or HRIS.
Absence management is crucial to productivity and bottom line results. Initiating the support and resources necessary within your company to design and implement a plan to study the data and take action can have positive impact on both your costs and your morale.
Sample policies here range from simple attendance policies to sick leave management.
