Ensuring that you get a grip on your staff absence may seem like a daunting task, however it will make a big difference to your organisation in the future.
Ensuring that you staff are aware that their sickness is being monitored will help cut down on short term absences (i.e. Monday mornings and Friday afternoons)
The most common and effective way of implementing an absence strategy is by setting some "trigger points". For example, if someone has had 3 separate episodes of sickness a meeting will be arrange with HR. Another could be if someone is off on long term sick, regular contact is prompted to ensure a quick, simple and smoother return to work process.
All of the above sounds great but naturally will take time and effort to put into action if you are using Spreadsheets, paper based forms and a wall chart in the office.
