The Course Aims

In this Managing Absence Training Course, we look at Managing Attendance rather than absence. This means being proactive when managing sickness.

It’s reported that ill health costs the UK economy in excess of £100 billion per year. Paying sick pay, loss of productivity, covering long term sick and recruitment costs all add up.

Most sickness is genuine where the people need to take time off; however, some sickness may not be all of that genuine. It seems easier and easier to get a sick note today, in fact, some websites even sell them. Why do people want to take time off work when they aren’t genuinely sick? Declined holidays, bullying and lack of motivation are just a few reasons.

Many organisations deal with sickness after it happens using return to work interviews and their sickness policy, but is there another approach?

The session is very interactive with lots of discussion, role-play scenarios and an action planning session.

  • Understand the importance of managing attendance
  • Recognise the causes of absence

Our Approach
No PowerPoint

Yes, you read that right! We’ve removed PowerPoint from this and many of our other courses.

Instead we opt for more creative ways to deliver course content and create more discussions in our courses.

Less Theory, More Practical

We don’t spend time on theory. We’ll introduce it but focus more attention on practical tools and ideas that you can actually take away and use.

We’ll provide the theory in your course materials to take away with you.

Clear Pricing

Our pricing is clear. You’ll see the exact price of our open training courses on our site.

We’ll quote an all-inclusive price for in-house and bespoke work. You won’t pay a penny more than we quote you for your course.
