Absence management is defined as an employer’s approach to managing sickness absence. Because of this, absence management covers a lot of areas. Not only might your plan work to reduce absenteeism, but it may also work to strike a balance between those who are genuinely ill and those who are not. As a result, you can deal with questionable and excessive absences while dealing with real ones.

By working with us as your partners in workplace health, you’ll be choosing a group with over 40 years of experience in the sector. Our team of healthcare professionals will work with you to create your bespoke plan. Get in touch with us today to get started and find out more about absence management!
