Keeping an eye on employee absence is crucial to your business’s success. After all, employee absenteeism affects everything from productivity to staff morale.

Accurate data, at your fingertips

Our software records and stores all information regarding employee absence and holiday entitlement. Your team can access this data from any device, so there’s never any misunderstanding about how much time they’ve taken off. Supporting information, like Bradford Factor scores for each employee, helps you root out absenteeism before it can become a problem.

Breathe’s absence management software gives you back the precious hours you’d otherwise spend on laborious HR admin.

Set custom sickness trigger rules

Set trigger rules - whether it be Bradford Factor levels or number of sickness instances - and Breathe will let you know when someone has reached that level.

Stay on top of sickness levels proactively, so that you can check in with your people and make sure they're getting the support they need.
