The Five Hidden Causes of Employee Absenteeism – and What You Can Do About Them

Unplanned employee absences are a fact of business. Virtually every employee will occasionally call out at the last minute due to illness, car trouble or a family emergency. If you’re like most employers, your time-off policy is designed to accommodate those situations.

But what about those employees who call out repeatedly, with one excuse or another? Should you jump to the conclusion that it’s all the employee’s fault?

Sometimes, the reason behind chronic absenteeism is not what you might think. This free webinar explains how employers can unknowingly contribute to employee absenteeism and presents simple solutions to help you improve attendance, and in turn, increase productivity and engagement.

Watch now and learn:
