Absence Management

Why Manage Absence?

The 2006 CIPD Employee Absence survey reports an average per capita cost of absence of between 2005 and 2006 of £598 per employee.

As well as the costs of individual absences, absence can:

  • put pressure on colleagues
  • build a culture of absenteeism (absence indifference or entitlement mentality)
  • pose a compliance challenge
  • become more difficult to manage the larger the organization

In addition, Health and Safety and duty of care responsibilities for employers have broadened meaning tighter regulations and more focus on employers.

Absenteeism is now a key focus for senior management with the potential to produce a significant impact upon operational costs and efficiency.

Our Absence Management System

Our Absence Reporting and Management system assists organisations to manage absence on a fair and consistent basis.

Our integrative approach provides effective support to line management and optimising the impace of the existing employee support services such as Human Resouces, Occupational Health, Health and Safety and Employee Assistance Programmes.

    (Accurate data capture, comprehensive analysis, bespoke design)

    (Signposting to relevant support services/benefits)
  • Supports all aspects of the organization's Absence Policy
    (Provides notifications, forms, referrals audit trail and monitors triggers)
  • Scaleable and efficient infrastructure
    (Experienced contact centre staff in a quality managed environment)
  • Potential for case management from day 1
    (Prompts effective interventions designed to reduce lost time)

The programme has typically produced sustained reductions in absence rates of the order of 25% to 70% with the associated returns on investment of 7 times cost to more than 25 times. It has also been well received by employees, line managers and trade unions.

Our smooth and integrative service means the line managers can be assured that their staff have the best possible care.
