According to the CBI, sickness absence cost the UK economy nearly £17bn in 2009 which is an
average of £596 per employee.
To tackle these costs it is important the employers take a proactive approach and uncover the
causes behind absenteeism. Employers must create an organisational culture that manages
attendance and engages employees. Line managers need to be confident and competent to
effectively handle return–to-work interviews and attendance data needs to be monitored for
the best impact.
Whether you have a comprehensive sickness absence policy you would like to benchmark
against other leading organisations, an attendance policy in need of some rejuvenation or you
are looking to introduce a policy within your organisation this conference will provide
constructive ideas on how to improve your attendance management practice.
