FREE WEBINAR – Out of Office: Improve Employee Absence in 2016

According to the CIPD, employee absence has risen again, from 6.6 days to 6.9 days, per employee each year.
With only two fifths of organisations currently monitoring the cost of absence and only 25% of organisations achieving their absence target last year, the topic will no doubt be high on the agenda for many HR teams in 2016.

So, what are the financial implications of this rise? How does it affect productivity and morale? And what are the dangers of an absence issue going legal?

In association with the CIPD, Cascade Human Resources Ltd are teaming up with Paul Addy from Positive People and Caroline Acton from Consilia Legal to bring you a FREE information packed webinar that addresses all aspects of absence management.
