Line managers are underprepared to manage sickness absence

Phoenix Occupational Health Occupational Health Provider
More employers are recognising the vital role that line managers play in supporting employees whi are off work on short-term and long-term sick leave, but most aren't giving them the tools they need to manage absence effectively.

A CIPD 2016 Absence Management survey, in partnership with Simplyhealth, reveals that less than half of employers (44%) train managers to handle short-term absence from work. This is a drop of 8% - down from 52% in 2015.

See the infographic below for a snapshot of key findings from this year's report:
