Seamlessly record sickness absences & gain vital people data
Record Sickness Absence
Record sickness absence in a few short steps, along with a reason for that absence. Managers can log sickness absences from their desktop, on the go via our mobile app, or permit employees to record it themselves.
The system alerts will flag when an employee is taking regular sick leave, so the business can intervene with additional support if needed.
Bradford Factor Score
Automated Bradford Factor scoring tracks staff absence and alerts managers when trigger points are exceeded, so you can intervene early with the right employee support.
Return To Work Forms
Online return to work forms allows managers to document sickness instances, improving the efficiency of the return to work process.
Online calendars provide users with a personal snapshot of all planned and unplanned absences over a 3-year period. edays allows you to define work-groups with sight over each other’s absence calendars, providing visibility across teams and departments.
Generate, view and download reports based on sickness absence for individuals, teams and entire departments within your organisation. Reports can be automated to run daily, weekly or monthly, and exported for use with payroll systems.
Complete monitoring and logging of employee sickness
Complete visibility of the sickness of your workforce. Easy-to-use sickness tracking, logging, monitoring, triggers, and alerts make managing sickness leave simple. This gives clear oversight of who is sick and when, keeping teams safe, and helping employees to return to work.
Champion early intervention with dashboard reporting and sickness alerts
Champion early intervention using our dashboard reporting and sickness alerts. From sickness absence to tracking isolated employees working from home, edays gives you the tools to be proactive and prevent spikes in unplanned sickness absence. edays will also alert managers of workplace sickness cases, helping keep your team safe and productive.
Health and wellbeing tools at your fingertips
Health and wellbeing tools at your fingertips. Encourage employees to be happier and healthier with self-service access to professional health and wellbeing advice. In some countries, employees are asked to log a reason for sickness. This allows edays to send advice to sick employees on how to recover and gives managers insights into common absence reasons. Securing GP appointments can be tough. For customers in the UK, our online GP service gives your employees access to speak to a GP without leaving home.
edays has enabled us to follow processes more rigorously and a big benefit is the visibility of absence throughout the organisation. The reporting functionality is used to show clearly which departments need to focus on employee engagement and wellbeing when it comes to sickness absence. It has also allowed us to keep on top of the holiday bottleneck and ensure that we have a smoother flow of absence throughout the year which is much easier to manage.
edays is a great system that is easy to use and understand when it comes to logging sickness and booking holiday. It provides us with all the absence information we need through one screen and the system can offer expert medical advice to ill employees at the click of a button.
We really struggled with countries using the old HRIS system, we had very little flexibility and limited functionality across HCM. With the combination of Cornerstone for booking and managing learning alongside the absence tracking and reporting offered through edays, we’ve found a solution that has saved endless hours of admin and increased employee engagement globally.
SICKNESS MANAGEMENT QUESTIONS
Sickness absences should always be logged, along with a reason for the absence. By doing so, recurring absences can be quickly identified and proactive steps can be taken to offer additional support to the employee.
A clear absence management policy should also be in place as part of managing sickness. This will detail who an employee should inform if they are sick, the statutory sick pay they are entitled to, and what happens if they are sick for a longer period of time.
Sickness management also means people managers regularly checking in with an absent employee. It may be that reasonable adjustments can be made by the employer to facilitate the employee's return to work, or their working environment or schedule going forward if they have a recurring health issue.
With edays, managers can use the Bradford Factor scoring system to calculate an absence rate on a individual, team or company-wide level.
Triggers can also be set up to alert managers when that trigger is met. For example, if an employee is absent on three occasions over a set period of time.
Sickness leave can affect productivity and output, add extra strain on individuals or teams that are having to cover, and be an expensive cost to an organisation. Therefore knowing exactly how sickness absence is impacting an organisation can help to empower HR and people managers to address any issues and provide additional employee support and ensure better resource planning.
For HR, it is largely up to the preference of an organisation as set out in its absence management policy, as to what is deemed to be short- or long-term sickness absence.
In the UK, statutory sick pay is a legal entitlement that employees have, paid for by their employer, for up to 28 weeks. Some organisations elect to provide full pay to an employee for a certain amount of time (for example for the first few days of sickness leave), before starting statutory sick pay.
