Absence Management COVID-19


Absence management technology can help businesses to stay on top of sick leave, cut the cost of absences, and manage workforce shortages during this hectic time.  

Staff shortages were cited as a worry by 59% of managers in a Covid-19 tracking poll conducted last October, with nearly four out of ten claiming that sick leave or self-isolation of employees had hampered business. In addition, over three-quarters of workers said they were “anxious” in their jobs with mental health struggles on the rise.  

HealthBoxHR offer an absence management tool, whether it is due to holiday, sick leave or mental health issues. Not only can you monitor absences but more importantly you can improve them!  

With our tools you can detect any underlying issues and trends all in one place, avoiding any potential future problems. The dashboard view ensures management are given a clear snapshot of who is off, why and who approved the request, all of which can be reported on.  

HealthBoxHR puts the control in the employee’s hands with easy to submit holiday requests from their own profile anywhere in the world via a web browser or the app. Management can authorise holiday requests and set statutory holidays for multiple employees across different regions or departments and keep a clear record with in-built absence tracking which helps you to identify trends before they become a problem.
