Software cracks down on sick days

One in eight sicky's are made up


Voice recognition software is being used to crack down on employees throwing sicky's. According to the Daily Mail some companies are using a new generation of voice analysis systems to detect whether someone is lying when they call in sick.

A trial at the Harrow council saved approximately £420,000 in false benefit claims. Voice Risk Analysis, developed by a software company Digilog listens to the caller's voice to detect changes that suggest they are under pressure or lying.

The software finds that one in eight sick days are not genuine. (Fudzilla is more than willing to test the software internally, sub.ed.)
