Absenteeism, Disability and Incapacity Management

Measuring and recording absenteeism

Workplace attendance and its converse absenteeism, are complex, multi-dimensional issues involving the interaction and subtle interplay between worker, employer, workplace, social, societal and economic factors. Measuring and recording absenteeism data means nothing unless you understand, monitor and actively intervene. It is what our clients know and understand about absenteeism drivers that leads to sensible and sustainable initiatives.

Benefits of sick leave management in the workplace:

  • Improves productivity of employers.
  • Assists Human Resources and line managers by:
    • Providing required tools to manage and control absenteeism.
