24/7 absence reporting

If an employee is absent from work, they call the Honeydew absence registration service as their first point of contact where call handlers gather and record relevant data. Alternatively, you can opt for managers or employees to register the absence information by logging in to our system online. When this information is complete and submitted, immediate notifications are sent to relevant managers and stakeholders through email and text message alerts.

Online tools and resource hub

Our software delivers tailored reports showing up-to-the-minute absence levels and trends whilst highlighting hotspots and non-compliance. Reports can be generated as needed or scheduled to report information at specified intervals. The Resource hub has task and case manager tools, sample templates, online workshops and interactive training courses. This information is key to engaging line managers as the more knowledge they have the more empowered they become.

Fast and effective referrals

Engage automated triggers and reminders can be used to ensure timely referrals to various services including occupational health, EAP support and physiotherapy. Highlighting potential high risk cases from first day of absence enables early intervention, which is a key factor in achieving quick returns to work. Remember, that after just 4 weeks off, 1 in 5 will not return to work so it is important to intervene early.

Implementation is easy

As a part of your Honeydew Day-1 absence reporting service, you will receive full support in implementation of the new service. The normal implementation timeline is 4-6 weeks, depending on the size of the organisation and the preferred roll-out schedule. There are just 3 tasks for the client-side implementation project leader:

  1. Choosing your preferred communication pack
  2. Compiling your staff list for upload
  3. Outlining your call script and key absence policy points
Your Honeydew account manager will walk you through the process and handle the rest of the setup. We will also send reminders at key points to make sure deadlines are not missed. Depending on the requirements, on-site or remote training for managers can also be arranged prior to going live.
