Managing Absence - Online Webinar

Published on 16 June 2023

Description - Online Webinar

Sickness absence from work is a problem for many organisations and can affect productivity, morale and flexibility.  It can also be a burden on management time and a significant cost to the organisation through downtime, sickness payments, paying temporary replacement staff and overtime payments to cover absent employees.  This webinar will provide you with best practice skills and techniques to confidently and effectively manage sickness absence in the workplace.
