Employee absence poses a huge challenge for every business. Not only does it cost you money, it also causes a lot of disruption, resulting in reduced productivity levels and placing additional pressure on colleagues who have to provide cover and face increased workloads. Over time, this can have a significant impact on the performance and long-term stability of your organisation.

Providing your employees with access to the right clinical advice at an early stage plays a vital role in reducing the duration of medical absences, helping to address and resolve health and wellbeing issues before they develop and lead to longer-term problems.
With Absentia, we can introduce pre-agreed absence triggers to ensure that those cases requiring additional support are immediately escalated to one of our expert Occupational Health Nurse Advisors, who will conduct a same-day follow-up call with the employee to:
Following the call, the nurse will send recommendations back to management on what steps they can take to support the employee back to health and any workplace adjustments required.
Early intervention like this not only means that your employees are directed to the right care pathway from the outset, without having to wait to see their GP, it also ensures that your managers are equipped to manage the absence more proactively from day one, thereby enabling a swifter, more successful return to work.
