Holiday entitlements

Let the system do the maths

Cezanne HR’s absence management software module handles even the trickiest calculations, so you don’t need to. Simply define your rules and Cezanne HR takes care of the rest, updating employees’ entitlements based on working hours, company rules and local calendars.

You decide when entitlements are calculated from and the accrual, rounding, carry-over and seniority rules to be applied. Mandatory holidays are easy to set up and supporting different regional or international HRIS requirements is simple too.

Approval Workflows

Help things happen faster

Time-off requests are automatically routed through your approval processes, triggering emails and updating task inboxes. Everyone is kept informed and everyone saves time. Managers can delegate approvals if they need to and, if processes get stuck, you can step in to sort them out.

You’ll have the freedom to configure approval processes to fit your way of working. For example, to include a multi-stage approval and notification process – invaluable where employees are involved in different projects or hold multiple roles.

Time Off in Lieu

Manage TOIL with confidence

If your company offers Time Off in Lieu, Cezanne HR’s flexible absence management software makes that simpler too. Employees can request overtime online and if approved, the system will calculate the TOIL (or payment) entitlements based on your rules, such as how much time off is awarded and when it must be used by.

When leave is booked, the system automatically uses the entitlement that expires first, so employees won’t accidentally lose time off they have earned.

Sickness Absences

Take a joined-up approach

From recording unplanned absences to tracking sickness levels and Bradford Factor reports, you’ll find Cezanne HR’s absence management software has everything you need to stay compliant and effectively monitor and manage short and long-term sickness absence.

Where attendance is problematic, it’s easy for HR or line managers to have open, informed conversations with employees based on a shared understanding of sickness levels and can work together to find solutions.

Notifications & Reminders

Help managers manage

Alongside easy access to accurate absence data, Cezanne HR alerts line managers to events that need their attention.

For example, you could set the absence management system to trigger a notification if an employee’s sickness levels exceed your KPIs, or to remind them (and the employee) that self-certification note is overdue. It’s a powerful way to help managers stay on top of absences and ensure important activities aren’t missed.

Policy documents can be shared via the HR portal, and personalised communications sent out using the integrated document tracking capabilities that come with the People management module. You’ll never have to worry about tracking down important paperwork again.

Reports and Analytics

Never struggle to run reports again

Cezanne HR Analytics Dashboard

See data at a glance

Dedicated absence dashboards make it simpler for you to keep an eye on critical trends, such as working time lost by year, or by working day, and focus down on individual organisation units.

Bradford Factor scores are easy to see and, thanks to point in time reporting, you can select different reference dates so you can look back at past performance as well as seeing current data.

You’ll have the freedom to configure dashboards to focus on those charts that are most relevant to you, and secure self-service access means that line managers can gain insight into their own teams.

Cezanne HR Query & Reporting

Drill into the detail

As you’d expect, the Absence module comes with preconfigured queries that allow you to generate reports at the click of a mouse.

Queries can be created from scratch or modified, saved and shared with colleagues or line managers, and scheduled to run on specific days if you want.

Since query and reporting is an integrated feature – not a bought-in add-on – it follows your security roles, so you won’t need to worry about managers or restricted HR users seeing information they shouldn’t have access to.
