At GoodShape, empowering HR managers and organisational leaders with powerful reporting tools designed to transform the way you understand and address employee absence is at the heart of what we do.

To us, employee absence reporting is more than just keeping track of who's in and who's out; it's about understanding the underlying trends, patterns and causes behind unplanned absences to address root issues effectively.

We believe that access to accurate absence data is the key to strategic planning, resource allocation and ensuring compliance with policies and regulations.

The power of employee absence reporting


Employee absence is a multifaceted issue that can significantly impact business performance, productivity and employee morale.

Traditional absence reporting methods often lack the depth and granularity needed to understand underlying trends, patterns, and root causes, but GoodShape changes the game by providing HR managers with unparalleled visibility into employee absence data through advanced reporting capabilities.

Revolutionise workforce management reports with GoodShape.

Our suite of reporting tools has been specifically designed to empower HR managers and organisational leaders with actionable insights.


End-to-end absence data capture.

We streamline the process of employee absence reporting with 24/7 data capture capabilities.

From sick days to unplanned absences, our platform ensures accurate, complete, and consistent reporting of all absence incidents, enabling HR managers to gain a comprehensive view of workforce attendance patterns.


Real-time alert engine.

GoodShape's real-time alert engine ensures that HR managers are promptly notified of absence incidents and any violations to your organisation’s absence policies.

By automating alert notifications, our platform enables proactive intervention and timely follow-up, helping to minimise the impact of employee absence on your operations.


Customisable reporting.

Our platform offers customisable reporting that provide at-a-glance insights into key absence metrics, trends, and KPIs. HR managers can tailor these reports to their specific needs, allowing for a personalised and intuitive reporting experience.

Predictive analytics for forecasting.

Our technology goes beyond hindsight reporting by leveraging predictive analytics to forecast future absence trends and risks.

By analysing historical absence data and identifying patterns, our platform helps HR managers anticipate any future staffing gaps, plan resource allocation, and implement targeted interventions to reduce absence-related challenges.


Compliance management made easy.

Staying compliant with absence management regulations is essential for minimising legal risks and maintaining integrity.

GoodShape simplifies compliance management by tracking all critical absence management-related actions, including return-to-work interviews and absence review meetings, so you can be sure you’re aligned with regulatory requirements.

“We would recommend GoodShape to other organisations who want to streamline processes and reduce absence.”

high levels of absence, such as musculoskeletal problems in the factory, we can proactively address them because we now have clear trigger levels in place.”
