Tracking attendance is easy with absence management software

Sure, everyone can get sick and need some time off work—and you’re a good boss, you understand that. But it can become a real HR headache to keep track of your team’s attendance if you’re still slumming it with a lousy spreadsheet…

BrightHR’s smart online attendance software makes managing your staff absences simple. It’s quick and easy to record who’s off and why, and you can even log lateness, too.

Because while you might have The Dream Team, you’ll have to get serious if somebody regularly rocks up late—and that’s going to be a lot easier if you’ve got the evidence securely recorded in your HR attendance tracking software.

Keep accurate records and download reports with your new leave of absence software

But don’t forget, there are also a lot more types of leave to log than just sickness and lateness. That’s why BrightHR’s award-winning attendance management software lets Aussie businesses record all common types of absence, including:

  • checkDoctor’s and dentist’s appointments
  • checkMaternity, paternity and shared parental leave
  • checkTime off for dependants

And when someone is off sick for more than seven days, you can use the sickness reporting tool to easily download an employee absence report.
