    Approve absences via email

    Managers are notified when a new absence request is submitted and can approve or reject holiday requests straight from their email inbox.

    Monitor sick leave patterns

    Each employee has a sick leave heat map which will highlight which days of the week they take off most often.

    Get notified when requests come in

    When an employee requests time off a notification will show on your dashboard until you have either approved or rejected the request.

    See all absences in your calendar

    Your calendar will show you both approved and pending absences. This makes it easy to look at holiday requests in relation to other events and absences going on at that time.

    Always know who’s in the office

    The who’s out list on your dashboard allows you to see at a glance who won’t be coming into the office today. It will also tell you when they’re expected to return.

Define your own absence limits

Staff Squared lets you set absences in multiple ways. You can choose how many staff you allow to be absent at any one time, either by department or by staff group. You can also create custom staff groups which dictate that only one member of the group can be absent.

You can also set two limits for each specific type of absence, one for how many instances of the absence type you allow per employee per holiday year and one for how many consecutive days you allow to be taken for that absence type.

Using an online HR software removes a lot of the stress of not knowing where staff are, what their record of attendance is, and how your small business is impacted. Absence management translates into better performance, better customer service, and better profitability. Book a demo today and spend more time on your business, not your HR.
