Absence Management Training

Absence Management Training Understanding Staff Sickness Levels

People get sick and injured - it is an unfortunate fact of life. But that does not mean that every one of these incidents has to result in an absence from work. By undergoing absence management training, you can gain a clearer picture of what is happening in your workplace and how it affects the health and wellbeing of staff.

Absence levels are, on average, at an all-time high in the workplace. The key to reducing absenteeism is understanding its causes and making changes based on these findings. Training in sickness absence management covers these elements, as well as looking deeper into how businesses are affected and how they can better manage the situation. Such training courses will in general provide information related to the main reasons for absences, the causes of sickness and the effects that this has on stress and anxiety levels of remaining staff, as well as the financial situation of your business. As well as these fundamentals, such a course should take you through the legal requirements related to your policies, building, staff hiring and retention, among many others. It should make these specific to your situation so that you can improve the corporate wellness of your staff team. It should also provide you with positive ways forward, from ways of improving the environment, to looking at how early intervention and a focus on what staff can achieve, will minimise the number of days taken off work. Undertaking such instruction is only worthwhile if you take what you have learned into your work environment and share the strategies with your staff.
