Reasons and Resolutions for Absenteeism

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