    Helping Hands Home Care successfully deploy Activ Absence Control

    A very big thank you to Denise Monaghan, HR Manager of Helping Hands – The Home Care Specialists for providing the following testimonial:Helping Hands Choose Activ Absence management

    Activ Absence Control is an easy system to use and is visible to all Departmental Heads / Teams. For a company like Helping Hands who have many Managers working out in the community it is a great tool to be able to see who is in/out at a click of a link.

    We manager absence levels through the Bradford factor which is visible to all employees on their dash board and this has had a positive impact on the absence levels, there are very clear expectations, the absence triggers set support the HR function and the Departmental Managers to monitor absence effectively and consistently.

    The system is productive as there is no more paper or filling in of forms. The history log of the return to work interviews is key to managing absence and the reporting on trends of absence is very beneficial to monitoring absence cases/meetings with individuals.

    The technical departments response is effective and quick, I requested a particular report that wasn’t already in the system, I was very impressed that within 48 hours they had set it up and delivered what I needed.

    All in all, we are very happy with the system, it has improved our absence monitoring and reporting processes.

    We’re not against staff holidays, we just want everyone to enjoy the summer!

    “The average UK employee only uses three quarters (77%) of their annual leave entitlement every year” (Full story can be read here)

    This leaves many organisations struggling as it’s peak time for staff to take their annual leave.

    How are you managing at this busy time of year?

    Do you have a clear idea when and who is taking time off?

    What if you had clear visibility of staff availability across the company?

    When it comes to managing your employee holiday entitlements, in our experience one size doesn’t fit all.

    Activ Absence Control is an online absence management software system that enables you to flexibly manage staff holiday entitlements and sickness absences in the way that suits your organisation best.

    Configure, holiday entitlements for employees as you require, enabling you to manage different entitlements based on seniority, length of service, country location or carry over rules.  Automatically calculate employee entitlements based on the rules you’ve defined, their start dates, working hours and working patterns. During the leave year, if an employee’s working hours change, Activ Absence Control automatically calculates the new entitlement, saving you time and ensuring consistency and accurate information.

    Staff holidays are supposed to be fune, not stressful so contact us today for more information!

    Are your staff having an Egg-stra(!) long weekend this Easter time?

    This upcoming Easter will allow your staff to enjoy a whole week off by only booking 3 days off! Another Eggs-cuse for a holiday? Okay okay, we’ll stop the Eggs-cellent jokes now!

    As we settle down for the weekend to over indulge in mountains of delicious chocolate, managers may also notice that staff also over indulge in “sickies”… all that eating is exhausting!

    Make sure that you are in total control of who’s off and when with a stream lined absence management process.

    If you would like to move away from those time consuming paper based forms or spread sheets, then we can help!   

    Activ Absence Control provides you with a clear view of who is off, when, for how long and any trends in absence. Managers & HR will have visibility of holiday requests and sickness absence to make informed decisions quickly and easily.

    Start your no-obligation trial before Friday 25th April & we’ll even throw in an Easter Egg!
