Managing employee attendance with data our Attendance Platform.

HR Employee Absences Tracking

Employee attendance data, tracking, and management are a problem for many organizations. Today, to manage your team, you must integrate the most powerful tools that can support the needs and questions of your management and team members. 

Do you know how much absences cost your business?  

Does your team have the employee attendance data they need to make decisions? 

The US Department of Labor (DOL) approximated that practically 3 percent of an employer’s labor force was absent on any given day. The resulting loss in productivity, poor employee morale, and short-lived labor create a high cost to the organization. The price of these losses is often misconstrued, seen as not easily measured, or dismissed as minimal since the expenses are primarily included in payroll expenditures. Furthermore, employers often rely on methods like spreadsheets and time cards to track attendance manually.

In this blog, we’re going to discuss the importance of managing employee attendance and explain how an automated tool quickly provides support and integrates with your existing ERM, timekeeping, or payroll software. 


Why track employee attendance anyways?

Compelling stats support evaluating and tracking the price of an employee’s absence: both the hard-dollar costs (e.g., wage, advantages, and substitute workers) and the soft-dollar costs (e.g., decreased spirits which cuts performance). 

Unscheduled absenteeism costs roughly $3,600 per year for each hourly worker and $2,660 each year for salaried employees. Including costs related to: 

  • Wages paid to absent employees
  • Overtime pay for other employees and higher wages for temporary workers
  • Associated costs of managing absences inside your organization

The cost of absenteeism can also relate to soft costs like: 

  • Poor quality of goods
  • Lack of time or effort for outstanding customer support
  • Reduced productivity
  • Poor time management, especially for managers having to deal with discipline and finding employee replacements
  • Safety issues (inadequately trained employees filling in for others, rushing to catch up after arriving as a replacement, etc.)
  • Poor morale among employees 

Healthy employees have more energy to invest in your business! Crafting a healthy workplace with clear communication saves your manager’s time, the company money, and your team with ease.
