Managing Sick Leave 2020 Part 2 – Preventing factors that increase sick leave

Tue 11 Aug, 2:30 PM NZST - 4:00 PM NZST

Practical steps and considerations to reduce 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 and “sickies” 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
  • Consulting with staff in a “carefrontation”
  • Providing more generous sick leave entitlements
  • 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 reduce the likelihood of sickies
  • How to help people recover faster
  • Meeting with staff to discuss sick leave
  • What to include in sick leave and wellbeing policies

SUITED TO

This webinar is suited to HR professionals, managers, business owners, and employers from all industries seeking guidance to reducing rates of sick leave.

It is also useful for business professionals, such as lawyers and accountants, who want to keep their clients informed on best practice.
