WEBINAR TWO

Managing Sick Leave Series 2019 Part 2 – Practical steps to reduce sick leave

Identifying & Preventing Issues that increase sick leave.

High rates of sick leave and absenteeism are some of the most expensive and disruptive problems facing New Zealand employers.

Absent team members increase the workload and stress for others, while dramatically decreasing productivity.

Most companies just accept that sick leave is unavoidable and do little to address it.

Do you know there is solid scientific research that suggests most companies can reduce sick leave by up to 50%!

Find out which workplace issues exacerbate or contribute to high rates of sick leave, and how to manage these issues.

In this webinar, we will focus on how you can reduce sick leave in your organisation by:

  • Understanding how excessive stress weakens our immunity
  • How poor sleep makes us more susceptible to disease
  • Why depression is the leading cause of disability and what to do about it
  • Addressing bullying
  • Reviewing hours of work
  • Carefrontation with staff
  • Implementing solid policies around sick leave

LEARNING OUTCOMES

In this webinar, attendees will develop an understanding of:

  • Factors that weaken the immune system and make people more vulnerable to extended sick leave
  • Factors that can lead people to avoid work
  • How to reduce the risk of staff taking excessive sick leave
  • Practical ways to dramatically reduce sick leave
  • How to help people recover faster
  • What to include in sick leave and wellbeing policies
