Australian Businesses Suffer from Absenteeism
Definition: Absenteeism is the practice of regularly staying away from work without good reason.
Everyone is guilty of absenteeism at least some point in their lives. But how do you know when absenteeism is becoming a real problem within your business? How much it is actually costing your business invaluable work time, productivity and money?
A survey conducted in November 2014 by Direct Health Solutions, a firm that specialises in reducing workplace absenteeism, found that sick days are costing Australian businesses a record $33 billion in payroll costs and lost productivity.
Sick days are not only costing Australian businesses money, they are also being incorrectly recorded.
“Absenteeism levels are understated and incorrectly recorded in over 50% of organizations.”
“To ensure employers understand the impact and cost of absenteeism to their business, companies need accurate recording and measurement systems in place” said Managing Director of Direct Health Solutions, Paul Dundon.

Punctuality? Challenge accepted!
Tanda is taking punctuality to a whole new level with our Employee Attendance Reports and challenged employees this month to up their game. This was all in celebration of the anniversary of the Time Clock where we had a Bundaberg Rum giveaway prize to the lucky winner. Congratulations to Liz from Clement Coffee in Victoria, Melbourne for being a highly punctual employee! Clement Coffee’s obviously doing something right to create a great workplace atmosphere where employees don’t want to be late for work! Did we just gamify employee attendance? From a business point of view, every manager would love to see their employees get actively involved in turning up to work on time. Now with great accuracy using data from Tanda’s time clocks, businesses can track the exact times an employee clocks in and out, but also generate a report to see staff punctuality stats. Knowing this kind of information adds all kinds of value, especially to those dreaded performance reviews. Businesses with multiple departments/locations can even compete and compare scores at monthly meetings. Existing Tanda users can access the Attendance Reports already. Not using Tanda yet?

Why Pharmacies Love Tanda
Tanda spoke to Jarred, Co-Owner of Marraboor Pharmacy about his experience using Tanda. Marraboor Pharmacy is a locally owned and operated pharmacy located in Swan Hill. They have been providing great quality service and health advice to the community for over 50 years. Known for their friendly and knowledgeable staff, Marraboor Pharmacy provides a range of health services. Immunisations and blood pressure recordings as well as a number of over the counter and prescription medications are available. “As a business owner and pharmacist, being part of the local community is really important. What I love about my job is being able to help people through the service we provide.” Jarred discovered Tanda when he went searching for better solution to manage and roster his staff across his busy store. Having previously used online systems and spreadsheets to roster, and paper time sheets to record staff attendance, Jarred was looking for a solution that could solve his rostering issues and make payroll processing easier. “Running a pharmacy, means that labour is my second biggest expense after stock. I therefore needed a simple and fast way to create rosters for my team, and forecast my labour costs. It needed to be easily visible, and able to connect to my Xero account so my wife could do payroll. “Tanda’s made a huge difference in how I roster. It was so easy to use with the drag and drop feature, and I could quickly see that I had my whole team covered with the colour-coded roster. “The integration has been so easy with Xero, and has made a real difference for my wife. She used to come in on a Monday to do payroll, and would spend hours chasing up staff who’d forgotten to fill in time sheets. Now she can come in, check the time clock selfies and time sheets, and do payroll in no time.” In addition to faster rostering, Jarred is also enjoying the Award interpretation and leave management features built into Tanda. “Being able to forecast my labour costs, plan my time and workforce through Tanda has really made a difference. I can see all my labour costs easily in Tanda, so I now know when someone is going into overtime on a Saturday, and how much that will cost me. “There’s already plenty of paperwork involved in running a pharmacy, so I’m a big advocate of paperless systems. Being able to track and approve staff leave requests electronically through Tanda, has made it much easier not only for rostering and payroll, but for tracking our leave accruals and leave costs in general.” Tanda is giving Jarred more time to spend focusing on his business and his patients. “As a Pharmacist, health professional and business owner, the less time I spent on admin, and more time spent focusing on running the business and providing excellent customer service to my customers, the better. Tanda is helping me to get out of the back office and away from the paperwork, to spend more of my time on pharmacist related work, which is what’s important. “Any pharmacists or business owner for that matter, should be using a cloud-based system like Tanda. It’s a great product and the customer service is excellent. I’d highly recommend giving it a go.” Marraboor Pharmacy is a locally owned pharmacy in Swan Hill, that has been providing exception customer service and health advice to the Swan Hill community for more than 50 years.
