Absence Management Forum 2010 – Documentation


The CIPD’s annual Absence Management Survey found that the overall level of workplace absence across all sectors of the economy is an average of 7.4 days per employee per year. This is resulting in an overall cost to the UK economy of £17.3 billion. Many companies are still under estimating their rates of absence and, in turn, the financial impact this has on the company.

Symposium Events’ 6th annual Absence Management Forum 2010 offers you practical solutions to reduce your absence rates. This forum offers both HR and occupational health professionals an invaluable insight into how a variety of high profile organisations are tackling long and short term absence, implementing effective rehabilitation programmes and training line managers to identify potential problems.
