TeamSense Text-Based Employee Call-In FAQs

Absence management software simplifies the end-to-end process of workers taking time off. It enables employees to easily report their absences, communicates those absences to managers and HR, integrates with other software like payroll or HRIS, and provides valuable reports and insights that help companies improve workplace attendance.

An employee call-out line is a phone number that workers use to report an unplanned absence, like calling in sick. The call is usually answered by a human operator who records and gathers information so the company can correctly code the absence, document if the absence is related to a workplace injury, and pay, or not pay, sick leave. Because human error is inevitable with human operators, many companies are replacing the traditional hotline with automated, online call-off services, like a text-based call out system.
