Trigger Point Alerts

Welcome to Automated Absence Monitoring

Managers notice both holidays and sick days in their team, but it’s harder to spot the patterns behind them.

As well as accurately recording different types of absence, Activ Absence can automatically monitor absence trends for you.

You define trigger point alerts for the criteria that is important to you. The system will then alert the right person automatically when that criteria triggers a review.  This enables you to take action in line with your company standards and policies.

Think of it as having an extra person in HR that spots the things a busy line manager might miss.

Example Trigger points for Planned Absence

Here are some trigger points you could consider configuring:

•   Automatically prompt staff to book leave if a set level is accrued, thus preventing a build up of annual leave

•   Monitor planned medical leave, prompt a manager review if leave reaches a set level

•   Monitor training leave, prompt a manager review if leave requests for training are higher than expected

•   Monitor staffing levels, alert a manager if an annual leave request is likely to create a staff shortage

 

Example Trigger points for Unplanned Absence

Here are some trigger points you could consider configuring:

•   Monitor sick days, prompt a manager review if sickness incidence reaches a set level

•   Monitor Bradford Factor score, prompt a manager review if score reaches a set level

•   Monitor Disability Leave, prompt a management support review if incidences are increasing

•   Monitor Days of Week trends, prompt a management review if all absences are on a Monday
