Absence is one of the most persistent problems affecting productivity, profitability and competitiveness. Days lost due to absence are a major drain on the economy and the competitiveness of individual organisations. All companies must have a comprehensive and continuing absence management policy in an effort to confront the issue. However, dealing with staff who have an attendance problem can be a problematic issue which tests the skills of the line manager and the HR practitioner.
The purpose of this programme is to give participants
- An understanding of best practice in the field of absence management
- An ability to analyse the scale and impact of absence in your workplace
- The skills involved in managing the process will be highlighted and practised during the programme
- Knowledge and appreciation of the applicable employment law in this area
This is a one-day programme. There are a number of activities and case studies as part of the course to ensure that the key knowledge and skills are practiced.
The programme is delivered by experienced Ibec executives who provide members with advice, consultancy and training on a daily basis. Participants are encouraged to express their views and experiences. Case studies and exercises will be used to ensure a real practical understanding of each topic.
Who Should Attend?
