Managing Absence Training
Managing absence effectively is about encouraging employees to take responsibility for their own health and for attending work regularly; supporting employees to return to work as soon as they are able.
According to the CIPD the average employee was absent due to sickness for 6.6. days last year however there are wide variances within this figure. The average public sector employee was absent for 7.9 days while the average private sector employee was absent for 5.5 days.
Employee absence has a major impact on all organisations, however the likelihood is that all employees will become unwell at some point during their working lives. Managing absence effectively is not about encouraging employees to come into work when they are unwell; it is about encouraging them to take responsibility for their own health and for attending work regularly; supporting employees to return to work as soon as they are able; making reasonable adjustments where necessary and dealing promptly and sensitively with long-term absence so that the matter is resolved in a timely way.
Anyone who has a responsibility for managing absence in their organisation.
