  • 1. Reasons and Resolutions for Absenteeism
    Combat the Growing Problem
  • 2. Reason:Lack of Commitment
    2
    Employees are simply not interested in their work or concerned about the success of the organization
    Stems from low employee morale, which is caused by many things:
    Poor treatment by management
    Unpleasant working environment
  • 3. Reason:Lack of Consequences
    3
    No incentives for strong attendance
    No punishments for poor attendance
    Employee packages that allow for a lot of absences can lead to workers abusing this
  • 4. Reason:Poor Working Conditions
    4
    Poor treatment from managers
    Unpleasant or stressful working environment
    Lack of breaks
    Too much strict supervision
    Excessive workload
  • 5. Reason:Honest Excuses
    5
    Personal problems
    Car trouble
    Illness
    Although there is a fair bit of absenteeism that could have been avoided, employees are often away from work for valid reasons
  • 6. 6
    Resolution:Work-Life Balance
    Consider building “personal days” into employee packages
    Make employees feel comfortable enough to be honest about reasoning behind absences
    Implementing a flextime system can help achieve this balance
  • 7. 7
    Resolution:Follow-ups
    Sit down with employees when they return from an absence to discuss:
    Reason for absence
    If absence could have been prevented
    The implications of absenteeism on the company (*if it is a common occurrence for this employee*)
  • 8. 8
    Resolution:Consequences
    Have positive and negative consequences for strong and weak attendance:
    Offer rewards and incentives for strong attendance:
    Monetary bonuses
    Simple praise and recognition
    “Employee of the Month”
    Punish employees with poor records and unexcused absences
  • 9. 9
    Resolution:Automation
    Install a system to automatically track employee time and attendance, in order to:
    Reduce administrative work
    Allow employees to book time off and managers to approve requests online
    Calculate who is eligible for overtime
    Create fair schedules
