Absenteeism is one of the biggest costs facing today's businesses, and many
companies use an absence control system to help minimize
these expenses. That's why Unitime Systems developed
Points Manager, an add-on feature available in the
Desktop and Enterprise versions of the UNITIME Automated
Timekeeping System. Points Manager tracks employees'
attendance infractions, assigns values to each
infraction, and determines penalties according to
predefined limits--all within the daily workflow of time
and attendance. By reducing absenteeism, Points Manager
helps increase productivity and morale while minimizing
the time spent monitoring employees' activities.
Points Manager automates the entire absence control
process, applies all rules consistently and fairly, and
ensures that employees are penalized when specific
conditions are met. However, Points Manager also helps
recognize employees who don't incur attendance
infractions. Infractions can be configured to expire,
and employees can earn back points for good behavior.
This promotes and rewards good attendance, thereby
improving the overall corporate organization.
Fully CustomizableEach company deals with absenteeism differently, so
there are hundreds of different types of policies in
use. Points Manager is fully customizable through a wide
range of parameters and can accommodate nearly any type
of policy and tracking method. Standard Points Manager
- An unlimited number of policies can be set up in Points
Manager, and each policy can have different penalty
rules. For example, the policy for one location
might stipulate that verbal warnings be given to
employees with four points, while the policy for
another location might allow employees to accumulate
up to five points before receiving a warning.
- Each policy can contain an unlimited number of periods in which
rules or limits apply. For example, employees might
be required to complete a 90-day probationary period
with strict penalty thresholds before advancing to
the standard period with different thresholds.
Periods can be configured to start on employees'
hire date or a predefined date.
- Unique point and/or hourly values are assigned to triggers such
as absences, tardies, and long breaks, and different
triggers can be tracked for different employees. Pay
types like sick leave and vacation can also be
associated with values so that use of those pay
types triggers an infraction.
- Supervisors are automatically emailed when employees incur
infractions, and they can enter comments about each infraction.
- Infractions can be configured to expire, and different infractions
can be configured to expire differently or not at
all. However, all original infractions are always
archived regardless of any expiration policies.
- Points Manager calculates each employee's point balance according
to the configuration of policies, creates penalties
when predetermined thresholds are reached, and
provides reports on employees who have received
penalties so that appropriate actions can be taken.
- Employees can
receive points or hours deductions as a reward for
not incurring any infractions. For example,
employees might receive a 1/2 point credit if they
do not have any infractions within a 30-day period.
This time period is configurable and can be set to
key off of days, weeks, months, quarters, or years.
- Points or hourly
totals can be zeroed out on a specific day of the
year. This is a global setting for each policy, so
all points or hours will be zeroed out on a specific
day each year for all employees assigned to the policy.
Points Manager ReportsPoints Manager includes five reports that give
supervisors quick access to Points Manager policy
assignments, incidents employees have incurred, and
penalties employees have received.
