Benefits Administration – definitions – Absence recording

Absence can be recorded electronically or on paper. Increasingly large numbers of employers are implementing systems that allow employees or their managers to record sickness absence themselves.

This is usually done through a self-service system online (via the company intranet or secure internet site). This type self-recording software relieves the HR department of a time consuming administration task, however the software can allow managers and HR departments to conduct indepth analysis of sickness absence patterns across departments, teams or even individuals in order to identify and remedy problems.
