Stiira Leave Management Software: December 2023 updates

In the ever-evolving landscape of leave management, Stiira continues to stay agile and proactive with updates that save time and effort, simplify compliance, and reduce stress every step of the way. The latest iteration of our leave management software represents a significant leap forward, equipping organizations with more control and flexibility within compliance guardrails.

Enhanced leave year and hour tracking compliance

Stiira’s new leave year transition feature enables you to change your policy seamlessly without the headache of manually reviewing and adjusting existing employee leave cases to align with different hour tracking guidelines.

  • Configure all leave year rules under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and new state regulations.
  • Set effective dates for the system to transition leave year rules applicable to existing leave cases.
  • Set parameters to restore hour entitlements for employees who have taken leave.

Our system’s built-in logic handles the relationship between leave years, leave types, and total hour entitlement banks to accurately track leave usage per your policy and applicable regulations, ensuring compliance as you navigate the ever-evolving leave landscape. In addition to the leave year transition functionality, Stiira offers expanded hour tracking capabilities for specific case types such as:

Advanced role configuration options and increased visibility

Empowering key stakeholders in the leave management process is essential to the Stiira approach. We’ve continued to expand upon our role-based configurations for HR administrators to leverage supervisor support and proactively keep team members informed with status updates.

The latest additions include expanded role configurations to control whether supervisors and other company representatives can submit new requests and upload documentation on behalf of employees. This flexibility allows our customers to customize the system to their needs and provide an extra layer of support that most HR teams are seeking. Stiira also implemented role-based note visibility so administrators can provide additional case updates to other team members as they manage each element of a leave case.

Improved leave administration functionality

In the ongoing effort to relieve the burden of HR responsibilities, Stiira released improvements across the board to simplify case management and reduce time spent on various tasks.

With our new case recertifications feature, managing ongoing leaves of absence has never been easier. Administrators can initiate a recertification request, establish due dates, set reminders, and manage documentation all in one place to ensure an efficient process for extending employee leave.

Other key improvements include:

  • Expanded list of leave types and reasons with options to accommodate new state regulations.
  • Mass add hours to a leave calendar with an “add from clipboard” feature that brings your time tracking data into the system with one click of a button.
  • Calendar “list” view for improved visibility on mobile devices when referencing upcoming due dates and leave hours.
  • Hide (and unhide) cases to “clean up” leave data in the system.

Stiira’s latest updates signify our commitment to providing an easy-to-use software solution that improves the leave management process for employers managing this function in-house and third-party administrators offering leave services to their clients.
