[ key benefits ]

Retention of Key Employees

Retention of key employees is paramount in today’s highly competitive business

environment. High employee turnover constitutes a significant cost to an organization.

Minimum direct cost associated with employee turnover equals a multiple of the total

annual remuneration of the departing employee.

ABSALOM provides your organisation with the tools to:

• Identify, develop and retain your best performers.

• Reduce employee turnover through implementing employee retention

strategies including:

- Effective performance management

- Training

- Development

- Remuneration packaging

- Career planning

- Succession Planning

Corporate Productivity

Management and human resource professionals must be freed of time consuming

administrative tasks. ABSALOM ensures:

• Once-only data entry to reduce processing time

• Bulk allocation of information (e.g. employee transfers, training courses)

• Automation of routine tasks

• Workflow to streamline business processes

• Devolvement of menial tasks through employee and managerial self service

• Easily import information to eliminate manual data entry

Management and human resource professionals can then focus on strategic

value-adding initiatives.

Our business is about people. Specific and accurate data is necessary - Absalom morphs

 the data to valuable, useful information. The Absalom HR Information System assisted us

 with refocusing on the human aspect of each employee. I am encouraged to use the system

 to suit my needs in an environment where I can direct how much assistance I require

from the Absalom consultants. The consultants are my partners in finding solutions. They

consistently upgrade their programme not only to comply with legislative requirements,

but also to make the Human Resources administration side easier for the team.

 Absalom and the SQL database dovetails into our current IT-strategy.
