Advice and strategy for a tailor-made absenteeism policy

Absenteeism is a challenge for every HR department. An absenteeism policy is therefore a must. Using a project plan, you can interpret the policy based on your needs and goals. Our experts will help you with this.

The challenges you are struggling with

Your absenteeism approach is only successful if everyone in your organisation is behind it. Things often go wrong there. And this can be due to three reasons:

Absenteeism is seen as an HR problem

HR is often alone when it comes to absenteeism. Even though managers are closer to the employees. By involving managers, your absenteeism policy has more impact.

Absenteeism is measured, but not analysed

Thoroughly analysing absenteeism reports provides you with the necessary insights to build your absenteeism policy, and to accurately evaluate actions and adjust the policy if necessary.

Agreements on absenteeism are not complied with

Practice shows that people often do not know about or understand absenteeism agreements, which means they are handled carelessly. Managers sometimes see the agreements as an administrative burden rather than an aid. Crystal-clear absenteeism procedures put an end to this.

A positive absenteeism policy in five steps

Despite all good intentions, absenteeism plans usually fail in the end. It doesn’t take long to find the reasons: HR employees are all too often alone in their ambitions, the real causes are rarely known, and after a while, absenteeism agreements are handled carelessly.

It is precisely these challenges that we are tackling with our five-step plan. This is a roadmap that we draw up with you and then tackle in stages.
