Course description

Absence Managent Certificate Online Training Course

Occasional ployee absence is unavoidable, but frequent absence comes at a considerable cost to an organisation. Absent ployees cost their ployers money and time and repeated absence can lower morale. A team will feel discouraged if one or more of their mbers are often away from work and this can lead to resentment and tension in the workplace.

Ultimately, persistent ployee absence has a detrimental effect on profits and can damage valuable relationships between a business and its clients. Therefore, all organisations need to take a proactive approach when it comes to absence managent and prevention. Fortunately, you can reduce absenteeism by understanding the underlying causes and taking practical steps to reduce it.

In this course, you will learn why ployees may be absent from work, how to handle instances of absence, how to help those with genuine reasons for absence return to the workplace and how to discipline ployees who are absent without good cause. You will discover how to strike a balance between supporting the needs of your organisation while promoting the health and wellbeing of its ployees.
