This course provides several useful handouts and exercises relating to absence management.

What is ‘Absence’? And how do we go about managing it and reducing it wherever we can, without falling foul of employment law?

This training has been created to help safely navigate you through the minefield of absence management, paying attention to issues of systems, procedures and organizational culture along the way. Using a selection of exercises, activities and sample documents, the course examines some traditional methods of management as well as some more contemporary and innovative ways of keeping a lid on casual absence. Participants will take away a number of practical tools and ideas to enable them to target performance improvement when back at their desks
