Do you need support and advice with how to manage an employee on long term sick or with frequent absence?
Absence Management for many companies is one of the biggest HR issues they face. It is also one of the areas that many get wrong which in turn leaves a company open to the threat of legal action.
Solve HR understands how frustrating this often sensitive issue can be as it is not just the cost of paying that person but also finding someone else to do the work. It is also one of the most common issues we deal with on behalf of our clients.
According to the CIPD 6-8 working days are lost due to illness.
For a company of 10 people this means between £7000 and £9470 could be lost per year.
Solve can help you reduce the average days taken per staff member and assist you to manage when employees are near breaching trigger points. We can create an absence management policy or discuss with you the best recording method for absence (including the Bradford factor) to make it easy for managers and employees alike to understand company standards.
We have experience in advising on frequent and short term absence or supporting long term absence related to an underlying health condition. We are focused on helping you fix the problem in a timely manner that is best for your business. Our experienced HR consultants are dedicated to working with you to proactively manage absence issues, including advising on when to access specialist advice from services such as Occupational Health. Working in partnership with you, our aim is to ensure that we are firm, but fair with your employees, whilst helping you successfully navigate the potential pitfalls of absence management.
