    customer feedback “…Activ Absence – it is a very powerful tool…”

    Nothing makes us happier here at Activ Absence than fantastic customer feedback.

    We arrived at the office this morning to a glowing testimonial from CEL Group.

    “Activ Absence is a simple, easy to use, but extremely effective piece of software that enables us to manage our absence. Our core business is all about creating efficiency and streamlining processes for organisations and sometimes for entire sectors – Activ Absence shares this common aim. That tedious, time consuming process of manually chasing paper for booking holidays and reporting absence is a thing of the past. Activ Absence provides you with a very cost effective and efficient means of gathering this data. We are able to better monitor absence levels and take action in the early stages and in most cases ‘nip any problems in the bud’ before they become a major issue.

    Nominee For Best Absence Management Solution…

    So the Oscars 2014 have been and gone and no doubt you had a few weary eyed people in the office this morning…

    Although the Oscars is all about the film industry celebrating the amazing work produced and also the style shown on the red carpet, the biggest topic of conversation this year has been the Ellen DeGeneres celeb selfie!

    Getting the right tools in place to manage sickness absence…

    New figures from the Office for National Statistics have revealed that the number of days lost to sickness absence has fallen by an estimated 47 million in the past 20 years.*

    This is great news for businesses but we think with the right tools this can be even better…

    Activ Absence Control can help monitor, analyse and keep track of your employees sickness history. With the Bradford Factor automatically calculated for you we can set up trigger points alerting HR when an employer goes above your approved score. 

    Within Activ Absence Control, we also have a Return to Work form available which includes any historical sickness information in real time format, including sickness types, days and length of sickness.

    We would be happy to demonstrate this functionality within 30 minutes, just click the button below and a member of our team will be in touch to arrange this at a suitable time and date.

    Activ Absence Control… the software solution to your staff absences.

    “We’re only a small business…”

    Our Marketing Coordinator, Kate, was on a local training course yesterday and ‘as you do’ at these events got chatting to the lady sat next to her.

    Being the true Marketeer as she is, Kate described what Activ Absence was all about and asked the lady the big question… “How do you currently manage all staff holidays and sickness?”

    National “pull a sickie” Day!

    The first Monday in February is the day British workers are most likely to ring in sick .

    The fact that we have had wintry weather, January blues and the Six Nations have begun, workers will be more likely to “pull a sickie”. 

    The cost to the economy in lost work and business opportunities, the cost of salaries and overtime payments, was to be estimated at more than £32 million in 2013…

    CIPD Annual Conference & Exhibition 2013


    We are now back in (not so sunny) Swansea after a fantastic two days in Manchester as an exhibitor at the CIPD Annual Conference & Exhibition 2013.


    We would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone who came by our stand 478 and talked to us about how they manage their staff absence & helped us gain a real insight to how companies feel around this subject.

    We always talk both our existing clients and potential clients on the real issues they face when it comes to managing staff holidays and sickness and the feedback we achieved over the past two days will now help us move forward and better Activ Absence Control.

    The welsh cakes that we took along also went down a real hit, some people from the day one even came back on day two to thank us for introducing them to such delicious delicacy.



    We will be in touch with everyone we spoke to at the event to arrange their online demonstrations and FREE set up with their £200 off vouchers!

    Thank you again!

    What is the Bradford Factor?

    The Bradford Factor is a measure that combines absence frequency and duration measures to identify an employee’s irregularity of attendance. It is a way of illustrating how frequent short-term absences may cause more disruption to an organisation than occasional long-term absences: the higher the ‘score’, the worse the disruption. It is calculated using the following formula:

    How to calculate the Bradford Factor

    • S x S x D=Bradford Factor

    • S is the number of spells of absence of an individual over a given period; and

    • D is the total number of days of absence of the individual over the same period.
