Multiple and varied absence and leave plans—such as tenured faculty leave and sabbaticals—make absence administration challenging for HR leaders in higher education. Leveraging mobile, social, analytics, and the cloud, Oracle Modern Best Practice enables you to streamline complex faculty absence processing and set up hassle-free course scheduling while ensuring the continuity of education for your students. Create absence policies that balance faculty needs with institutional goals. Enable managers to focus on more important tasks by automating manually intensive processes, such as absence service credit tracking and paid and unpaid leave of absence.
Use insight-driven definitions of absence and leave plans, types, and categories to ensure compliance with regulations (such as union and state mandates) and institutional policies (such as FTE criteria and sabbatical leave eligibilities). For example: you can manage eligibility across multiple appointments.
Configure different absence and entitlement criteria, eligibility rules, and accrual definitions. For example: awards for tenure service.
Enable employees to use any mobile device to access self-service tools for entering absence types, such as sabbaticals.
Calculate balances during the year to provide both employees and management accurate information on leave balances. Enable tenured faculty to review service credits toward their leave of absence.
Analyze absence trends to determine the impact of absences on your institution. Proactively identify potential issues to ensure faculty coverage and minimize course cancellations.
