What is Absence Management?
When we talk about absence management, we’re talking about a way for your business to reduce staff absences through illness, injury or the occasional bed day. You can achieve this by proactively ensuring that your
policies and procedures are enacted by all members of your management staff and that they are effectively communicated to your entire workforce. However, this is reliant on everyone pulling their weight. Over the years standards can slip and before you know it, the occasional sick day has turned into an increasing issue for your business. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an affordable absence management system that is capable of doing the hard work for your business and actively reducing absence rates?

Well, we’ve got news for you. Staff sickness and absence costs UK businesses millions in lost time and productivity! Don’t believe us? Take a look for yourself with this handy
absence management calculator.
Staff absences are a hidden issue that every business has. Unless you’re actively looking for it, you might never even notice it. But it’s always there. Every time one of your staff takes a sick day they fall a day behind in their work. As a result, their colleagues are forced to pick up the slack. Over time this affects staff morale, causes friction between colleagues and reduces the quality of their work. All of this then has a negative effect on your business! A less productive, unhappy workforce will inevitably start putting out lower quality work. In turn, this will begin costing your business financially! This isn’t a theory, this is fact. That’s why more and more UK businesses are beginning to invest in absence management software and systems like Attendance Pro.
