The Absence management survey report, produced in partnership with Simplyhealth, explores absence management trends, policy and practice in the UK. The report reviews some of this year’s key findings and considers how organisations can move forward.
 
This year's survey highlights that more employers are recognising the value of line managers in managing absence at work, but are failing to give managers the tools they need to manage absence effectively.
 
A quarter of employers (25%) identified that line managers being given sickness absence information is one of the most effective approaches to manage short-term absence and 15% said this was true for managing long-term absence.
