The Aim
To help managers tackle absenteeism within their teams, by using a structured and positive approach. About the program
Absenteeism is as common as the common cold and it costs UK businesses nearly £11bn every year. But when someone calls in sick, it doesn't necessarily mean that they're ill. They could be having difficulties because of bullying or experiencing childcare problems. Or they could be just having a game of golf. Even a slight change in the working environment can affect some people's motivation and lead to days off work.

This engaging and humorous new video-based program shows a manager who doesn't realize he has an absenteeism problem until it is pointed out to him. He is then persuaded to keep a video diary, so that his team can air their thoughts on the department. This helps the manager to realize that when he takes a positive approach, he can actually reduce the levels of absenteeism quite dramatically.

The program shows managers how to deal with this sensitive subject area in three simple stages.

1. Acknowledging the problem.
2. Identifying the reasons.
3. Agreeing a solution.
