    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.



    absence management system
    What is edays staff absence management?
    edays staff absence management system is purpose-built to deal with all your absence, sickness and leave types. edays makes managing absence much easier and gives you the ability to be much more proactive in the support you give your people. With edays, you can not only plan your workforce better, you can use data to drive decisions that make for a better workplace, and a more productive workforce.
    What is a sickness tracker?
    A sickness tracker such as edays is a system designed to quickly record and view all absences in an organisation as they occur, providing clarity on who is off work and when.

    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.

    What are absence procedures?
    Absence procedures are practices that an organisation puts in place in the event of an unplanned absence occurring. For example, if any employee has to call in sick - who should they contact, how and by when?

    That absence should then be recorded along with the reason for it. If the absence is due to stress or mental health for example, or it is a recurring issue for an individual employee, then the employer may want to check in with that individual to see if there are reasonable adjustments that can be made, or to signpost them to professional and appropriate help.

    Absence procedures also include facilitating the return-to-work process. If an employee is on sick leave for one or two days, checking in with the employee to see how they're doing is considered good practice. For longer-term absences, having regular check-ins with the employee and discussing possible reasonable adjustments that can be made to gradually help them back into work may be necessary.

    Having an absence management policy in place is key as this will outline all of an organisation's absence procedures. Learn more about how to create an absence management policy here.

    How do I track employee absence?
    The best way to track employee absence is by ensuring that all absences are logged and recorded in a centralised system. Where possible, the reason for the absence should also be logged.

    With edays, you can set up absence triggers which will send you an alert when that trigger is met - for example, if an employee takes three absences during a set time period. Having this data will enable people managers to proactively reach out to an employee who has been absent more than once in a short space of time.

    Without automated processes like these, absence tracking can be much more challenging if done manually - for example by using spreadsheets. This approach can lead to errors, inaccuracy and a lack of overall visibility of absences occurring in a team or whole organisation.

    How secure is edays?
    The security of our customer's data is our top priority. We are ISO 27001 certified and data is stored on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
