Workplace Options Offers Absence Tracking Solution

October 6, 2010 ( - Workplace Options, provider of work-life benefits and employee support services, has introduced Workforce Advantage Absence Tracking.

Workforce Advantage Absence Tracking is an employee absence tracking tool for businesses seeking to reduce unplanned absences and manage employee productivity. The tool will be available through Workplace Options’ Employee Assistance Plan (EAP) partners.  

Designed to integrate with a company’s EAP programs and other benefits, the Workplace Options tool is available free of any additional charge to Advantage Work-Life customers. Clients can use the Web-based application to review employee absence trends and identify opportunities to proactively support their staff when problematic absences arise.  

A press release explained that integrating the absence tracking tool with an organization’s EAP solution provides the opportunity for management to identify absences of a certain nature and connect staff with the appropriate EAP service to help. For example, if an employee reports multiple absences related to stress, dependent care, or even a sore back, the organization can refer the employee to services that company has purchased to help resolve the issue.
