Managing Sickness and Absence

All businesses suffer employee absence and sickness, and while largely unavoidable, it still impacts the business and other employees in ways beyond just additional workload.

Our online course will help you understand different types of absence and ways you can measure and monitor absence. We’ll look at return-to-work forms, why they’re useful, and how to hold effective return-to-work meetings. Finally, we’ll examine the formal process involved in managing absence and how to implement appropriate policies.
