Absence Management Consulting
WMC provides absence management consulting to assist our clients in building a comprehensive solution to effectively reduce their avoidable absences. Our consultants for this service possess a combination of deep domain expertise in occupational, non-occupational, wellness, and employee health issues. They combine this expertise with wealth of experience in business process design and Human Resource management practices. They are able to provide a strategic voice in the assessment, design, and building of your absence management strategies.
The first step of the consulting process is a comprehensive review of your current policy and procedures with your team. The goal of this review is to develop an understanding of the “gaps” or “leaks” in your organization’s absence management program today (all absences – occupational, non-occupational,STD, LTD and casual). Once GAPs are understood by all parties, an Absence Management plan can be designed for your business to streamline the process and reduce your avoidable absences.
We also assist our clients in staff training and implementation to ensure our clients achieve the desired returns from a well-functioning absence management program.
The assessment process generally includes the following areas:
- Policy and Procedures
- Plan design
- Staff education and accountability
- Tracking and measurement
- Health and Wellness
- Proper use of early medical intervention
- Protecting privacy and confidentiality
