Do your employees take time off? Of course they do; that was a rhetorical question. Everyone takes time off, and that’s why absence management is so critical for today’s workforce management.
Employees take time off for a variety of reasons. Time off can include everything from planned vacations to unplanned emergencies. Each has its challenges.
For instance, planned vacation time is often for longer periods of time. This can make waves in your scheduling process, or create coverage gaps that require temporary help.
Emergencies are also challenging. When an employee calls in sick, or has a problem with transportation or child care, it can throw a swivel in your swing shift. It’s enough to keep a manager up at night.
Absence management is the process of managing employee time off. It’s becoming critical for several reasons. Stability during absence is critical to maintaining ongoing service. Improving return-to-work success rates helps you save on training and hiring costs.
Employee absences cost money. In a workgroup of 15 employees, a company will lose 105 days of productivity each year. And there’s more… Lost productivity due to workforce disruption can impact profits. When employees cover for an absent coworker, extra effort results lower efficiency.
