Abstract: Prediction is a method of finding new insights from large data sets, it’s a reliable way to use big data for more accuracy. The overall goal of the process is to predict useful outcomes from dataset and transform into a meaningful insight for decision. Absence data has thousands of leave type information; by analysing the data, new insights can be predicted, since the data is growing exponentially, traditional method of prediction will not be effective. In this paper we discuss about prediction techniques and a survey of works done in the field of absenteeism is performed, This paper concentrates on machine learning algorithms and also presents the applicability of absence data in big data for workforce planning.
