Managing Absenteeism

PRESENTED DIRECT-TO-YOUR-DESKTOP by the Canadian Payroll Association with MaxPeople

In this webinar, we will discuss the factors that contribute to high absenteeism, and how Performance Management can help you to track and monitor absenteeism levels before they become problematic.

The DESC Model will be applied to help facilitate effective discussion between a manager and an employee with high absenteeism issues. Participants will also learn about the effect that strong engagement and recognition have on reducing employee absenteeism. Lastly, we will review the importance of having strong absenteeism policies, along with the employer and managers’ legal obligations, including the Duty to Inquire, and the Duty to Accommodate.
