Ever wondered how much absence is costing your business each year? Have you struggled to manage an absent employee, whether long or short term? In this informative and interactive workshop, we will look at the tools we have available for both the management and prevention of sickness absence. These will range from clear absence reporting procedures, sickness documentation, return to work interviews and managing within the law. Utilising practical skills and case examples, covering both short and long-term absence, you will leave the workshop with tips and actions you can put into practice as soon as you step back into the workplace.
