Sickness Absence Management

January 15, 2013

Sickness Absence Management or SAM is now more important than ever for employers of all organisations. The way in which an organisation deals with workplace absence will have a huge impact on the business as a whole. With the UK’s absence epidemic costing around £6.5bn a year, there has never been a better time for your organisation to re-assess its processes. This research coming from the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr).

Valentine OH can offer a range of services to build a comprehensive sickness absence strategy. This could include the introduction of an Employee Assistance Programme, Absence Management Referrals or an Absence Recording Service. By adding these services to internal processes such as return-to-work interviews you can build, an effective and proactive absence management package.

There are several benefits that the employer could see, including a reduction in employee absence, improvement of staff retention, maintain a healthy workforce and employee productivity.

In this tough economic climate, you may find these additions a necessity to ensure you’re organisation stays on top of employee absence.
