$99.95 $49.95



Employee absenteeism is a challenge that affects most organizations – regardless of sector or size.

We’ve learnt that many people believe that employee absenteeism is only an employee issue. After all, it is the employee that is not at work. However, absenteeism is also very much an organizational issue so it is everyone’s responsibility.

Most people will recognise that there are two main types of employee absenteeism – innocent and culpable. Innocent absenteeism happens when employees are absent for reasons which are not within their control (e.g., illness, sickness). Culpable absenteeism, on the other hand, occurs when employees who are absent without permission for reasons which are within their control.

We have developed these training course materials to help reduce the considerable cost of employee absenteeism. Our courseware is designed to help participants understand employee absenteeism and to then explore how the significant costs involved can be reduced.
