Absensce Alerts

Absence Alerts

First things first; when someone’s too ill to come to work it’s really quite useful to be aware of it.

Allowing employees to log their sickness against their shifts is a good start; receiving a notification if they’ve done so is even better.

Rather than wasting time wondering if your team member is just running late you’re already primed to bring someone in to cover, to reshuffle the rest of the team so that no one needs to cover, or to have a minor crisis because there isn’t anyone to cover. Whichever suits you best.

Log Absences

Log Absences

Of course, if employees feel too awful to even think about logging in to Shiftie you can always record their absence yourself instead.

With the ability to log the start and end date of the absence, or to leave it open as an ongoing record if you’re not sure when they’ll be back, you can keep your records up to date with minimum fuss. You can also note the cause of the illness for reference and make changes to the log as needed, although this won’t actually affect the patient’s condition, unfortunately.

Track Absences

Track Absences

An employee’s sickness logs can be a useful tool for working out whether regular absences are evidence of an attendance problem, bad luck, or a recurring illness (or all three, which really would be bad luck).

Being able to track the frequency, duration, and type of absence can all help with this, as well as keeping an eye on whether there’s a pattern to sicknesses, such as an employee always mysteriously feeling sick on Monday mornings (although really, who doesn’t?)

Hear from our customers

" Giving out shifts and finding cover is a much faster process, as I'm no longer looking through spreadsheets trying to find out who is available and if they are actually able to do the rolls that I need them to cover. The whole thing is much easier to see and that makes the process of rostering quicker, cleaner and with less errors. "
