Absence Management

Absence management in a business is essential to ensure that absence can be reduced, employees feel encouraged to return to work and for any employee well-being issues to be addressed.



Approximately 31.2 million working days are lost each year due to work-related ill health and non-fatal workplace injuries. Regardless of the size of your business, this comes at a great cost and can have huge implications on productivity and team morale.

Working with sister company, Bolt, our Absence Management eLearning Module for managers teaches techniques to address these issues, while complying with company policy. By implementing effective policies such as return-to-work interviews, the root cause for absence can be ascertained and any patterns identified. This also allows the employee to discuss any health and wellbeing issues and raise any other circumstances which may be affecting their attendance.

Combining this module with complementary modules of Management Training, such as Coaching and Mentoring, First Line Manager Skills or Motivating a Team, the elearning module aims to empower the user to effectively and proactively tackle management issues.

Fully online and interactive, accessible 24/7 on any device, in different languages and with no time limits, via Bolt's state-of-the-art learning management system. A certificate can be downloaded upon the successful completion of the eLearning module.
