Absence Management Training

Face-to-face or Live-Online Courses

Sickness absence costs employers, on average, 8 days per year per employee. The impact on business is clear, which is where absence management training can help. Even just one person either constantly taking a “sickie” or on long-term sickness absence can be incredibly time-consuming and complex to manage.

This training course can be delivered in-house or online and as with all of our courses, we will work with you to create the perfect course to fit your organisational needs - we consider you industry, sector etc. but below you will find an example of what this absence management training course normally covers...
