Do you know how much employee absence is costing your business?

Many organisations don’t give their line managers specific training for handling employee absence, but as absenteeism continues to grow, it’s becoming a major factor in ensuring your people stay happy and productive, and keeping your business working as it should.

Workplace absence costs the UK economy £18 billion in lost productivity every year. With that figure on the rise, an effective strategy to deal with absence proactively is essential.

We can help you understand what is causing your absenteeism by analysing sickness absence trends, coaching your managers to give them the confidence they need to make quicker, more consistent interventions, and providing the technology tools that not only prompt managers, but enable them to log all interactions so that you have the assurance your policies are being followed.
