We know how frustrating and costly absence can be on any business which is why we adopt a proactive approach where possible for all our clients. Our HR Specialists can introduce bespoke absence management programmes and provide training to line managers on how to manage absence in their teams.
There are many ways to reduce absence. Do you carry out return to work interviews? Do you have a robust absence management policy and procedure that is understood by managers and employees. From short term absence where there are patterns of having Mondays and Fridays off to more complex long term absence where employees are not looking like they can return to work, we can provide cost effective and efficient HR solutions bespoke to your business. We can liaise with doctors and medical professionals as well as carrying out home visits.
As well as reactive approaches to absence we also provide expert guidance on more proactive well-being initiatives to promote a healthy workplace environment. This is where businesses can save money by introducing schemes that can help prevent employees being off sick. Having a well-being culture increases employee engagement and sets out the business stance and how they value employees.
