Why Do We Need To Manage Absence?

Employee absence is a significant cost for many businesses and overtime and can potentially decrease workplace cohesion. 

By measuring and monitoring absence it enables businesses to identify potential issues at an early stage yet research suggests that up to a third of organisations fail to monitor absence. 

At Atoll HR we recommend you implement a robust policy that encourages managers to address absence head on and to have open conversations with employees. 

Effective absence management seeks to support the needs of employees while providing clear and consistent guidance to avoid unauthorised absence or inappropriate use of sick pay schemes. 

Whether you’re trying to tackle short or long-term absence we are here to provide guidance and expertise please contact us for further advice.
