Absence Management

Sickness absence can be a major cost to businesses, estimated in excess of £675 per person per annum. This results in colleagues having to take on additional work which can adversely affect morale if not managed effectively. We can offer absence management support and assistance with short term, sporadic, and long term sickness absence and help you achieve a reduction in the cost of sickness to your business.

We can help you to:

  • Develop processes to monitor absence
  • Establish appropriate and suitable measures
  • Develop documentation including return to work interview forms
  • Establish ‘trigger’ mechanisms to ensure consistency and fair application
  • Develop a sickness policy, managers' guidelines and training to increase confidence in tackling absence related issues, including long term sick and medical referrals
