Absence from work can have a substantial impact on your organisation in terms of :-
- Increased wage bills,
- Reduced quality and capacity of services,
- Lower staff morale,
- Loss of customers
Managers must know the law and how to be sensitive to employee needs. At the same time they must protect the efficiency of the business, especially when illness, injury or disability results in long-term absence or an inability to work.
A high proportion of organisations suffer increased absence levels associated with stress, anxiety or other mental health issues. We can assist you to develop approaches to reducing stress-related absence and then providing very practical advice on how to manage absent staff.
Our Consultants have a wealth of experience in dealing with capability and sickness absence issues and will help you to minimise the costs associated with high absenteeism.
We are also able to coach your managers in the effective management of attendance issues including the development of policy and practice guidance. Most importantly, we can provide you with the advice and guidance to implement an effective absence management strategy that will reduce levels of short-term sickness absence, if this is currently above-average.
