A SOFTWARE package which can help separate the staff faking sickness from the genuinely ill has been updated with a range of extra functions.

Demand for Employersafe Intelligent Personnel Software has amazed even its creators since it was launched last year with an ability to spot which staff only ever fell ill on Mondays and Fridays, or around key sporting events.

Red tape specialists Employment Law Advisory Services (ELAS) first unveiled the software - around £600,000 in the development – last year as a tool for tackling a wide range of employment law issues.

Twelve months on, the software has been updated and is now better than ever thanks to a number of major updates to its capabilities.

At the heart of the new functions is an absence management module, taking the system from an excellent tool with which to tackle absenteeism and making it an integral part of business planning.

The new system collates all the information a manager needs to properly monitor and manage all types of absence – from occupational health and illness to holidays – and presents it in a clear and user-friendly way.

And by linking the software to ELAS’s new website, Employersafe users can access an even greater array of video tutorials, advice documents, case law and updated policies – all of which can be updated around the clock.

“The new absence management capabilities really shows any employer the big picture about absence in the workplace,” said ELAS consultant, Pam Rogerson.

“They may know that they have more people on holiday in August, but this gives them the hard, quantifiable figures and management techniques they need to make the most out of their workforce.”

The software even gives them advice on management techniques – such as suggesting questions for a back-to-work interview – to help employers make the most of the new figures at their fingertips.

“Employersafe has always contained a mine of information for users. By linking the program to our website, we can offer them so much more, and update it all around the clock,” added Mrs Rogerson.

“It also means that all the contracts and other documents we draw up for clients are available at the click of a button, slicing through any delays caused by sending paper documents through the post.”
