Effective absence management can reduce losses in productivity caused by absences, as well as minimising sick pay and the costs of additional resources to cover for absent staff.
Attendance issues for companies are one of the biggest HR problems and if not addressed correctly, they can have a detrimental effect on the business.
This negative effect can have an adverse impact on staff morale, and a rise in stress levels for those who have an increased workload as a result of colleagues being off work. The hours lost will result in a reduction in output, a delay in meeting deadlines and a lower standard of customer service. This snowballing effect can damage the reputation and brand of your business, so it is important to seek the advice of an HR professional.
Here at Business Butler, we have HR Experts with extensive experience working with startups, SMEs and large companies. They can help you by finding out the cause of the absenteeism, which may be down to a variety of factors; from personal problems to workplace issues or working relationships.
Our HR Experts can help you implement procedures and policies that will help minimise any issues with absence going forward.
For startups and SMEs that don’t have the resources for an HR manager, it makes commercial sense to outsource any issues around this sensitive subject to an HR professional.
