Employee absence has a direct impact on your business productivity, costing it time and money. Management may not have the confidence, training or knowledge to be able to effectively deal with the issue and therefore it is important that heads of department and other relevant members of staff are given the training to do so. They should be able to have open conversations with employees who are aware of the regulations and policies that assess when absence becomes an issue that needs to be dealt with, in order to prevent any further disruption.
Bradfield can provide you with the relevant support and training to help you draw a clear line under what is an acceptable period of absence, whilst dealing with these issues in a professional and sensitive manner. With the help of our experienced consultants, you may even begin to see existing absence rates fall and productivity rise.
