Absence Management


An absence management system is a strategic approach to handling employee absences. Unplanned absences, habitual absenteeism,and lateness due to illness and injury can have a major impact on a business’s bottom line. A quality absence management system might include:

  • Leave request submissions and approvals
  • Shared calendar featuring leave requests
  • Reports on leave balances and absence history
  • Integration with time-tracking tools
  • Customizable leave types

Investing in workforce management software that includes customizable, easy-to-use leave management tools can help a human resources team reduce workplace conflicts, avoid gaps in productivity, and develop new policies. These tools can be especially valuable in fields that require substitute workers, such as healthcare facilities and school districts.

Ascentis' powerful time and attendance software can help you with all of your absence management tracking.
