How to deliver this amazing training course on employee absenteeism

Before we dig into the employee absenteeism training course, one thing that we want to touch on is that for any of the learning to be transferred to real-life situations, you need to make sure that the course solves a specific problem for your audience.

Let’s talk about some of the people that this course can support. For example, this course content will primarily address the challenges faced by line-staff, human resource professionals, general managers, and senior executives seeking to advance their understanding of employee absenteeism.

The key here is that the content will meet your needs to deliver a training course and that it will also meet the learning and development needs of your audience.

Now, let’s take a few moments to offer tips that will prove invaluable as you deliver this course material.

The first tip to promote is that high rates of employee absenteeism can be a significant challenge for companies. And no, we don’t just mean for big business. This course content works for small companies, medium-sized enterprises, or within corporate settings.

The second tip is that by using this training material you will be able to guide your audience on how to respond to employee absenteeism. For example, let’s say your audience is suffering from high rates of employee absenteeism. All the measurements they know to identify this challenge point to the usual suspects. Yet, without your direction, they may be unsure of how to manage this situation.

In simple terms, this course content will allow you to train your audience to have a better understanding of absenteeism and how to measure absence and turnover.

Note: You’re probably wondering, “this is all great, but are there other courses that will complement this course?” Well, there’s not really one answer ever. However, employee absenteeism initiatives can be supported by training areas, from employee motivation skills to interpersonal skills and stress management skills. Combining these courses will also contribute to overall employee wellness levels across a company.

Read on to explore what you’ll receive and how we would deliver this course to others.

Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how we would use the content provided to deliver the key sections of this training course.

Understanding absenteeism – Engaging with your audience puts you in a position where you become part of the training group. From experience, we’ve learned that there are a couple of ways to do this.

First, you must always be specific. For example, promoting an understanding of absenteeism is the best place to start. And, by focusing on what absenteeism is, and using the content provided to explore the costs involved, you will generate a greater awareness as to what is required. Make a point to discuss the different types and causes of employee absenteeism.

The most common strategy to support learning in this area is to add examples relevant to your target audience. This use of meaningful examples is a proven way to generate better engagement. Typically, you should do this by either supplementing the content with a company or industry-specific standards or by sharing your experiences with absenteeism. This form of storytelling will help to embed learning for your audience. It also offers great opportunities for greater participation (refer to expert guides provided with this course for more advice).

Do you have a problem – In our constantly-changing world, it’s easy to feel that lots of things other than employee absenteeism are competing for our attention. For example, the needs of the employee, the organization’s objectives, and how work gets organized are just a few that spring to mind.

Plus, not every organization, or member of your audience, will know whether their company already has an absenteeism problem or not. And, while most business managers and employees may understand this, few are able to measure or address this challenge without the necessary tools. This experience is something we frequently hear from clients with leadership skills training needs.

In response, use the content provided to discuss how to identify whether an absenteeism problem exists. We always check with an audience on how absenteeism is measured within their companies and ask them to share their experiences. This form of discussion will build a lasting understanding of absenteeism and create better engagement levels.

Measurement – As long as you follow the content provided, you’ll be able to share that the time to start measuring absenteeism is now. Of course, there are many types of analysis within companies and endless ways to apply them. Focusing solely on the practical aspects of measuring absenteeism will allow you to make a durable connection with your audience. Remember that this approach will open opportunities to examine further ways on how to measure absences and turnover.

We use the content to help our audience explore how they can create a smarter way to view absenteeism and measurement within their own companies. Don’t just sell the idea of analysis for measurement sake. Promote the experience by offering a solution to this challenging issue with a company. And, don’t forget to remind your participants that they should not worry if they can’t implement everything right away. There’s nothing wrong with adopting a slow and steady approach. But, what is important is that they develop a successful measurement mindset.

Managing absenteeism – It’s safe to assume that higher employee absenteeism rates link to inadequate stress management skills and poor job design skills. However, it doesn’t get much easier than this to explore the purpose of managing absenteeism. Offering personal insights will also strengthen the content in terms of relevance and practicality. Use the material provided to focus attention on employee handbooks, attendance policies, training, and coaching. Then, use the content to examine the role of corrective action.
