Overview

This event covers both managing long and short-term sickness and tries to uncover the real reasons why people are absent from work.

The event will help you develop an action plan based upon having the ‘difficult conversation’ with an employee when they return to work, looking after the health and wellbeing of your employees and developing an overall approach to absence by linking attendance to job design, good employment relations, health and safety, flexible working and effective disciplinary procedures.

 

Business need

For many employees work means a lot more than just their wage. Studies show that work is generally good for health and prolonged sickness absence can produce its own set of problems: isolation, de-skilling, loss of confidence, mental health issues and social exclusion.

Keeping people at work and helping them get back to work as soon as possible can help maintain an employee’s health and wellbeing and improve organisational effectiveness. Managing sickness absence can be a challenge for many employers. Why is someone off? When will they come back? Is there anything I can do to help?

Note: Delegates who would welcome the chance to discuss and understand the practical application of Attendance Management will find this course of particular benefit.
Benefits of attending:
Employee absenteeism puts significant strain on an organisation, in terms of costs, productivity and additional burden on colleagues. Balancing the health and welfare needs of staff with robust and fair procedures which ensure employees don’t take advantage of unclear policy is essential for the overall productivity of a workplace.

Strategies for reducing sickness absence assist the organisation as a whole and lead to improved motivation, reduced stress and healthier working teams.

Suitable For

HR and personnel professionals, line-managers, head of department, team leaders and supervisors.

 

Price £170.00 per person
