In 2010, ENSEK set out to create an end-to-end SaaS platform for energy suppliers. They did this with the ambition to remove complexity within the market and allow new and established suppliers to challenge the status quo and provide more choice to customers.
10 years later, their team has grown to over 140 strong and they enable 25 energy suppliers and millions of their customers to change the industry for the better.
Historically they tracked employee absence and holidays via spreadsheets but found that keeping hard copies of the data ran the risk of getting lost around the office. This led them to look for a new system that would ensure employee data was held securely, as well as making it easier for employees to request holidays and record absence.
‘Setting up e-days was really simple; it was literally just a simple spreadsheet with employee details and email addresses. We sent it off to e-days and this magic system appeared at the end of it that was easy to use. Staff were really engaged with the system; they saw the benefit of it in the ease of use as well coming from a technology company they liked the technology aspect of it as well.’
ENSEK had four major requirements for their new system. They required a solution that made booking holiday and absence easy for employees, as well as managing these holiday requests from a managers perspective.
Their second requirement was to improve the visibility of individual team holidays and days in which team members where working from home or on the road.
The final two areas for ENSEK were for the new system to improve tracking and management of TOIL, giving the employee an easy view of how much TOIL they had earned, along with improving employee wellbeing.
Easier holiday and absence booking was made available to employees from day one, and visibility of who was in and out of the office was improved, all through a secure online system.
e-days produced immediate results from when it was implemented. Employees at ENSEK really engaged with the system, quoting its ease of use which they appreciated as a technology company. They could better schedule their holidays due to the increased visibility their team calendar provided, allowing them to better plan their holidays around each other.
It also has helped ENSEK increase the wellbeing of its employees by allowing managers to check if their staff were taking their holidays and highlighting any absence trends that they could help employees address.
e-days enabled ENSEK to take their absence management processes to the next level, improving the speed in which HR and admin tasks are undertaken and empowering employees to take control of their time off. We look forward to working with them in the future!
HR and Payroll teams immediately benefitted from statutory reporting by location, with a new confidence level as to the accuracy of the absence data.
