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
We all want to be happy in our work as we spned a good part of our lives there so creating a place where your staff want to come is a great way to do business
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.
