Does your organisation have a sickness absence policy?

Attendance/absence policy formulation

An attendance or sickness absence policy can give you a framework for managing all attendance issues fairly and robustly. A policy can help you advise your employees what is expected of them if they have to be absent and what may happen if their absences become problematic. A policy can advise employees and managers when occupational health support may be required and therefore help you utilise your occupational health professionals effectively. A policy and guidance does not need to be lengthy with complex terminology and should not make commitments that your business cannot afford. We can help you find a policy solution that fits your business, stimulating their desire to change their behaviour whether it be smoking, diet, exercise or alcohol intake and then providing strategies that will improve their chances of making and sustaining those changes.
