And you don’t have to worry about employees exceeding their mandated annual allowance of FMLA, because we’ll alert you — on-screen and by email — as employees get close.
What about your work-rule policy?
Does your company have a safety policy? How about guidelines for dress-code, conduct or quality? AttendanceCounts lets you define and record an array of non-attendance violations, so that you can use it to manage your entire “progressive discipline” policy.
Once entered, these discretionary work-rule violations are tracked alongside attendance violations. They will appear on-screen and in reports, and will be linked to form letters which can be printed from the software. You can enter public and private memo text, attach documents, and write rules that trigger additional disciplines based on these manually-entered work-rule violations.
Win unemployment hearings
Want to win unemployment hearings? You’ll need a paper-trail of progressive disciplinary action up to and including termination. You’ll need to demonstrate that all of your employees are treated uniformly, that there is no supervisory favoritism or discrimination.
The workflow engine built-in to AttendanceCounts ensures that you’ll have everything you need. We record every step of the disciplinary process including infractions, notification, and sign-off, and retain that audit trail forever. The next time you find yourself in an employment hearing or wrongful termination suit, you will finally be prepared.
How it works
AttendanceCounts works by capturing schedule and timecard data from Essential Time and applying your policy rules to that data. There are no buttons to push or imports to initiate. Data flows seamlessly from Essential Time to Attendance Counts in a manner that is completely transparent to you.
Within Attendance Counts, your rules dictate when and how you should be alerted to policy violations.You might have a rule, for example, which notifies you when employees reach six points in a twelve-month period. Another rule might reward employees achieving three months of perfect attendance by dropping a point from their record. You could have other rules that track missed-punches or No Call/No Shows.
Our rule engine continuously processes timecard data and triggers alerts and violations based on your rules. Alerts can be associated with customizable notices that can be printed or emailed right from the software. You won’t overlook anything because we will alert you on-screen and by email to any events or status changes that require your attention. A daily email summary distils the most important information you’ll need that day, so you’ll know what to do, even before you login. And your interactive dashboard in Attendance Counts oganizes information in a manner that’s best suited for you.
Attendance Counts has a lot going on under the hood, but that’s where the complexity stays – under the hood. The UI is strikingly simple and elegant. Most of our clients are off and running with just two hours of training. And the HR professionals that use Attendance Counts consistently site it as their favorite application in the HR organization.
