The estimated annual cost in the UK for working days lost to absence last year was £18 billion! While loss of profitability is clearly an issue, what we hear from our clients is that the practical implications and the effect on other staff because of absence issues can be more problematic.

For our September PowerHour we’re looking at absence, specifically how you can effectively deal with intermittent short-term absence. We’ll look at the key factors in ensuring absence management, the expectations when it comes to spotting underlying medical conditions, how and when sickness absence procedures should be adapted and if necessary when and how to dismiss fairly for sickness absence.

As with all the previous sessions we’ve held, we’re keeping the numbers small, with a greater focus on discussing this topic in a relaxed atmosphere over breakfast.

Come armed with your questions and we hope to see you there!
