This webinar provides guidance on how best to manage absenteeism in education, whether it be teachers or support staff. 

We look at best practice including:

  • creating the right culture;
  • how to manage short and long-term absences;
  • investigating the reason for any absenteeism;
  • supporting employees with potential disabilities;
  • how to get the best out of your occupational health referrals; and
  • when absence becomes a problem.

In a challenging economic climate with continuing budget cuts and increasing expectations of staff, sickness absence remains an ongoing problem that is important to address. We will help you consider how best to address the problem and will look at some tricky situation case studies.
