For many business managers and corporate trainers, creating the content is still difficult when they are also busy themselves. new territory or a smaller part of their business. However, consumer preference for online shopping has increased dramatically, and it’s crucial that we help people find all the best options available and help merchants more easily connect with consumers online.

Oak Innovation is loved by industry-leading professionals all around the world.

I have been buying Oak materials now for 9 years. They are top products and save you hours of work trying to produce something yourself. Incredibly good value too. More importantly, though is the personal service. Whenever I have emailed them they have been extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I have recommended Oak to dozens of people and have been thanked by so many of them for making the recommendation. If you’re a trainer then give Oak a go, you won’t regret it and wonder how you managed without them before.

Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how 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’s 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.
