What is Absence Management?
When employees are ill or injured, the organization is impacted by their absence. To manage those impacts, return-to-work plans are often created that outline any needed work accommodations and guidelines. HR can also help employees by making health program information readily available and accessible from anywhere. Organizations can also use a time management system to track and report different types of employee leave which can help identify absence trends that need to be managed.
