Tackling Absenteeism and Improving Productivity with our Absence Management Program
Absenteeism costs Canadian employers over $16 billion a year, with an average of 9.3 days (12.9 days in the public sector, 8.2 days in the private sector) of employee absences per year. Absenteeism contributes to a substantial amount of cost for organizations in Canada, with rippling effects on lost productivity and revenue. But many of these absences – and these costs – can be avoided. At Workplace Medical, we utilize a holistic approach to assist employers in identifying the root causes of absenteeism, what we call “the leaks” and assist employers in developing a plan to “plug the leaks”. Our process, coupled with our unique service offerings have assisted many employers in achieving financial and non-financial returns on their absence program.
