Managing disability, health and sickness absence
Your staff may need to take time off for poor health occasionally, maybe for a few days or maybe for longer. Managing this properly and knowing what you can do, and when, is a key factor in keeping staff healthy and in work. This is great for business as staff churn can be costly and affect productivity and performance.
Absence is a big cost and disruption to business so the more you can do to minimise this and support your staff back to work the better it will be. Effective management of absence and providing the right support for disabled people can be a balancing act but if you do it right it can help you reap the rewards of committed and happy staff.
Creating a good place to work
Walking into a workplace where people are happy and getting on with their work is a great feeling. We all want to work in places like that. Any business that knows a thing or two about creating a good working environment knows that if they can achieve this, it will payback in terms of improved productivity, creativity, and employee engagement - meaning your business thrives and your employees want to stay and help you achieve business success.
Accessing the widest pool of talent
Securing and retaining high quality staff who are skilled, loyal and hard working is vital. Save time and money on the costs of recruitment and training by reducing staff turnover.
Remaining legally compliant
Employment law can feel quite overwhelming at times, especially if you don’t have HR expertise within the business to help you keep up to date on the do's and don’t's of your legal requirements as an employer.
