Workplace Medical’s Absence Management Software

The Complete and Only Absence Management Tool Your Organization Needs.



Workplace Medical can help you tackle one of the greatest problems affecting organizations, both public and private, in Canada – employee absenteeism. Costing the Canadian economy more than $16 billion every year, absenteeism is a strategic issue impacting organizational effectiveness, profitability and employee engagement.

No industry or company size is immune to absenteeism, and senior management focus is critical. Too often absences are managed in silos and there is no central database and workflow solution to plug the leaks in the process, keep stakeholders accountable and get a true measure of the costs. Understanding and managing employee absences require sound corporate policy and helpful administration and monitoring tools.

We've helped countless organizations develop an Absence Management strategy from audit to implementation. Download a case study to learn about our process.

Workplace Medical's Absence Management software allows you to collect information about employee absences, share it with the right team promptly, and integrate it to identify absenteeism trends and correct issues. Unlike a payroll and attendance system, Workplace Medical's Absence Management software captures information as it happens in real-time, empowering your managers and HR to act proactively and decisively.

It is an effective and practical solution for any company struggling with workforce absenteeism. And it is a key tool in the Prevent, Respond, Return to Work framework of any effective absenteeism program.


Workplace Medical's Absence Management software is easy to implement and use. The web-based platform can be up and running, benefiting your organization quickly and without development costs. It is highly customizable, flexible and multi-lingual, allowing your organizations to:

  • Support the implementation of a clearly defined attendance policy
  • Manage vacation allowance and track vacation time-off
  • Manage organizational roles and responsibilities for recording absences and return to work processes
  • Track all types of staff absences and quickly identify trends
  • Follow a consistent, repeatable absence management process
  • Enable the organization to resolve non-compliance as per policy and record associated disciplinary action
  • Take a proactive approach to staff health and well-being
  • Reduce lost productivity and improve workplace morale
  • Reduce financial cost impact to payroll and the bottom line

The technology is self-serve and accessible from any computer, tablet or smartphone connected to the internet. Employee absence information is available in real-time and on-demand to the appropriate manager and human resources personnel. 

In addition, this web-based software works in conjunction with a central call centre service. The approach is high-tech and high-touch – giving your team the personal attention you need, with an automated process that’s always working for you. Trained operators receive your employee absence calls around the clock, avoiding messages received too late or missed entirely through voicemail.

No more missed voicemails, emails, or text messages when an employee informs your organization that they will not report for work. The reporting process is efficient and, most importantly, serves as a useful communication tool delivering a consistent application of HR policies organization-wide.

With employees increasingly decentralized, some working remotely, others dividing their time between the office, worksite, or working from home, a structured process for recording absences is a must. We help you devise a program and implement the tools for administration. Let's set up a time to meet.


After implementing Workplace Medical’s Absence Management software, you will notice the streamlined internal processes and policy standards for absence management improve almost immediately. In time, the costly loopholes that can affect productivity will be closed.

Your employees will have one central place to report absences. They can access the online holiday planner, make leave requests, and view who else is off during a particular time. They can easily view their holiday and sickness absence reports.
