Promoted by Absenteeism and Presenteeism: savings to be made by tackling the underlying issues

As we start the new year, we’re taking a look at some of the hot topics concerning you and your HR teams. We’ve put together a series of video debates – The HR Leadership Series – to explore what’s happening in the workplace, why it’s happening and what can be done to improve.

With input from Dr Anthony Hesketh from Lancaster University, a leading academic when it comes to understanding and explaining the current trends in HR, and hosted by AdviserPlus CEO Nick Bradley, we start by looking at Absenteeism and Presenteeism.

Here we discuss the savings that can be made by tackling the underlying causes of absence:

“Given all the hysteria around the EU currently, the net payment that the UK makes to the EU each year is £8.1 billion. That puts the £20 billion around absenteeism into perspective.” Dr Hesketh.

The full HR Leadership Series will cover:

  • Absenteeism and presenteeism

  • The four-day working week

  • Flexible working and tech

  • Generational mindset

  • Culture and performance

  • HR and analytics

  • HR and strategic thinking

  • ROI vs talent
