Employee absence is a significant cost for many organisations, yet research suggests that only a minority of businesses monitor that cost. An effective absence management process would provide clear and consistent guidance to avoid unauthorised absence or inappropriate use of sick pay schemes, identify potential issues at an early stage whilst seeking to support the needs of employees.
