Practical Absence Management Training
Wed 6 December 2017, 13:40 – 16:00 GMT
Persistent or long term absence from work can cause major disruption to employers. In our experience, many managers ignore these issues because they are uncertain how to tackle these problems in practice. However, sick pay and other associated costs employers millions of pounds annually. Further, poor handling of absence can itself lead to claims. In our experience, proactive management of absence issues discourages persistent short term absence and can encourage the return of long term absentees.
The aim of our practical absence management session is to work through a fictional absence management scenario and consider in detail how best to deal with and approach the legal issues that arise. This session will enable all attendees to work through a relevant example of absence problems commonly faced in the workplace, through a highly interactive and engaging session. This practical session is a unique forum designed to assist and provide those in HR and line managers with the tools to proactively deal with common, and tricky, absence management issues in the workplace.
