Sickness and Wellbeing Audits and Programmes
Sickness absence remains one of the most common issues we are asked to advise on. It often represents a persistent and costly problem not just in financial and productivity terms but also in the amount of management and HR time it consumes.
With pressure in most businesses to reduce costs, now could be a good time to review your approach to sickness absence and sick pay arrangements and to analyse where process improvements and potential savings could be made.
The audit is a fixed cost service drawing on our experience of advising clients on sickness issues and observing different sick pay structures and sickness management techniques. We will:
- provide you with a checklist to complete providing details of your current situation.
- meet with you to discuss your objectives and look at a sample of your current sickness cases.
- produce a detailed report setting out our recommendations where improvements and savings may be possible
