1 ‘ Technology that manages your people with you’ Copyright Townhouse Consulting Ltd The Absence Management System

2 Much more than a recording system – an internal resource that provides legally and procedurally compliant information, guidance and advice to line managers, at the desktop; A simple, secure system that ensures sensible, consistent decision taking based on best practice next steps, relevant to each individual case; A storage facility to record each employee’s absence and the actions and decisions taken, overcoming record keeping shortfalls; A database to support administration (letters, forms, templates and log sheets) – everything the manager needs to manage and reduce absence levels without the need to get advice elsewhere; Up-to-the-minute data recording and analysis. AMS: What It Provides

3 Password protected access; Simple welcome screen and user experience; Employee records split down to team or location; Detailed employee fields recording absences, actions and outcomes; Archived data with detailed auditable information; A comprehensive reporting capability; Fully integrated with existing policies, procedures, and data systems. The Programme Content

4 The Welcome Screen Let’s start by researching an employee’s record

5 The Absence Details: Jayne Elliott The initial screen records the first contact with Jayne and options for the next actions

6 Following Advice Prompts encourage the manager to consider their actions and assess their approach. AMS helps them to think

7 Telephone Script: First contact The following script is designed to enable you to apply a consistent approach to a telephone call. Every case should be judged on its own merits, but a consistent approach and style can help you deliver a professional call. Once you have applied this approach to a number of your calls you will start to notice that the content has become more natural to you and the script will no longer be required. It is vital that you try and ask all of the following questions as soon as you make first contact with an absent employee. This way you can capture as much data as possible. All information must be recorded on the AMS system. Standard Opening: ‘ Thank you for letting me know that you are unable to attend today. I just need to ask you a few questions about why you are unable to attend. It is vital that you try and give me as much information as possible so that I can record your answers on the Absence Management System. This is a standard procedure and nothing to worry about. ’ 1. How would you describe your illness? 2. What medication have you taken? 3. Have you seen a doctor? 4. What advice have you been given? 5. Has this occurred before? 6. If so, how do you usually control it? 7. How long do you envisage being absent? 8. How can I support you? 9. When can we talk again for an update? Record all of this information in the case notes. Standard Close: ‘ Thank you for answering my questions. I do hope that you start to feel better soon. Make sure you are taking care of yourself and I look forward to speaking to you again soon. ’ Always agree a next action e.g. another call or a home visit Scripts give managers the confidence to make a call and cover all of the relevant points, ensuring all the information required is captured and recorded.
