What are absence management solutions?

Absence management services help you tackle days lost through sickness by providing you with vital information to help you identify issues and giving your employees access to advice, support and treatments to help them better maintain their health.

Online monitoring tools can help you identify sickness patterns by parameter, including analysis by department and type of ailment, allowing you to develop both pro-active and reactive strategies to minimise prevalence.

Giving your staff access to expert health and lifestyle advice and enabling early intervention, empowers them promote their own wellbeing, whilst rehabilitation services help them recover and return to work more quickly. This advice can also address the growing problem of employees attending work when they are sick – called “presenteeism” – when it is in their interests, and those of your business, for employees to stay at home and recover.

How can you start using absence management?

Absence management solutions can be implemented as standalone solutions which complement existing HR department activity, or as part of an integrated Employee Assistance Programme.

They may include:

  • Online data and analytic tools to track employee absences, trends and costs to payroll, overtime and productivity
  • Wellbeing advice and events for your employees
  • Preventative interventions such as Private Health Screening
  • Occupational health services
  • Business health audits – to help you mitigate risk and better target your wellbeing resources
