Attendance Management

Absenteeism is a major cause of income and productivity loss for businesses. High rates of absenteeism in the workforce may also greatly affect an organization’s development. Therefore to remain competitive, it is essential that organizations implement an effective absence management program.

As this marked trend appears to increase over the next decade, the importance of sound management in the area grows. Financial losses associated with absenteeism usually do not take into account indirect costs, which include the replacement of absent employees, overtime and training. Furthermore, it has a negative impact on the workplace environment, decreasing productivity and competitiveness. Studies show that these indirect costs are 1.5 to 5 times higher than direct costs, generating significant additional costs for employers. Some companies face a continually high rate of absenteeism causing disruption in their day-to-day activities.
