About Absencehub.com - who is behind Absencehub.com?

Absencehub.com is a website about Engage Absence Management Software created by Honeydew Health Ltd.

Honeydew Health was founded in 2012 on more than ten years of experience in the absence management business with a vision to make absence management more positive. Instead of focusing on poor attendance, we inspire good, healthy attendance. We’re a small team of driven and dedicated individuals and we very much subscribe to the start-up mentality of keeping our business lean, creative and effective.

The Honeydew philosophy is that good attendance and performance management must start with good data - which is where Engage comes in. And once you’ve got good data, you must act on it, which is where Engage really comes into its own. Our goal is to provide the tools that make good absence management easy for all companies, big and small.

We believe in empowering all levels within an organisation, enable you to actively manage and drive healthy performance. Our core values – engage, inspire, empower, resolve – are the backbone of our approach to absence management. These values are put into action every day by our Managing Director, Malene Nielsen, and our Director of Product, Inka Ruishalme.

Absencehub Honeydew values: Engage


To begin, all levels of the organisation need to engage to form a unified front with a joint goal of improving attendance. It's important to include stakeholders from all levels to ensure ownership of the processes and tasks that are needed to achieve improvements. Senior management buy-in (or the lack of it) can make or break a great initiative but line managers are in equally important role when it comes to managing absence.
Absencehub Honeydew values: Inspire


As a team we aim to inspire one another, our clients and business partners. We are fresh in our thoughts, positive in our actions and passionate about what we do. Honeydew encourages a refreshing approach to absence and ill health issues.
Absencehub Honeydew values: Empower


Engage, our absence management software, empowers our clients so attendance related tasks and challenges are managed with ease. We provide visibility of high risk cases and problem areas with the appropriate tools and support to address them. We will help you take ownership of attendance management within your organisation. The aim is to proactively manage attendance whilst administrative burdens are reduced, freeing up time for value adding activities.
Absencehub Honeydew values: Resolve


We help our clients review how things are being done in order to find ways of improving processes. We analyse client data to provide proactive support, escalate non-compliance to spark change, and monitor costs to strengthen returns on investment. Our focus is to improve employee performance leading to increased - and sustained - productivity and profitability.
