Workplace absences are prevalent in today’s workplace and comes at a significant cost to many Irish businesses. Managing short-term and long-term absences requires effective communication and implementation of company policies and procedures. It also should consider preventative measures such as employee wellness programs that can improve employee morale and wellbeing and have a positive effect on employee absence levels.
