What is an Employee Call-Off Hotline?

Most organizations that employ a large workforce are affected by way too many employee absences, which impedes production and service delivery. An employee call-off hotline, also known as an employee attendance line, is a great solution to manage costs, improve efficiency and streamline your absentee management system.

Ensure accurate and compliant employee reporting with an employee attendance hotline. There are so many moving parts to an HR Manager’s daily routine. We hear all the time that managers and supervisors are constantly being interrupted with having to take calls from employees who say “I can’t make it in today” —whether it’s a flu, a stomach bug, inclement weather or if they have to take care of a sick child or spouse. There’s a much better way to manage those calls and stay within the integrity of your own workflow.

The reality is, many managers have no idea how much employee absences are really costing their organization. Some of the components that have a direct impact on a company’s labor and production costs include:

  • Inability to meet production deadlines
  • Staffing and coverage
  • Training
  • Employee retention
  • And so on . . .

This is how an employee attendance line answering service basically works. You’ll have a dedicated telephone number for employees to call and report their absence, tardy or even provide an FMLA update. A professionally certified call agent will gather your required information and dispatch the message to the appropriate shift supervisor/department, etc.—in real-time.
