When it comes to staff pulling sickies, do you have repeat offenders?
Many businesses are not currently tracking employee absences, but maybe now is the time to start. According to Adrian Lewis, Director at Activ Absence, “Absenteeism costs UK businesses in the region of UK £120,000 a year on average’.
If you’re amongst the 54% of employers who believe the biggest threat to your business would be an increase of absent employees, it’s time to safeguard yourself by having an recruitment agency on hand who can provide holiday cover at a moments notice. Even if you don’t require the service now, it’s never too early to put a plan in place.
