ONE-TO-ONE: How to manage employee absence

24th July 2019 | 10:00 - 13:00 ONE-TO-ONE

Event description

Employee absence is a significant cost for many businesses. Employees may need time off for a variety of reasons, from short-term sickness to longer-term health issues. Effective absence management seeks to support the needs of employees while providing clear and consistent guidance to avoid unauthorised absence or inappropriate use of sick pay schemes.This workshop will take a closer look at sickness absence, the reasons for it, and its implications for businesses. We will offer guidance on how businesses can measure absence, what should be included in an absence policy, and practical advice on how to manage short- and long-term absence. We will also look at the legal position when addressing unacceptable absence.

What will I Learn

  • How to develop an action plans for both scenarios.
