There are different factors that affect absences. Organizations can influence some of these, such as work environment and sick leave policies. However, others are more out of the organization’s control. We know that workplace absences cost the Canadian economy billions of dollars each year in lost productivity. So how can organizations foster a healthy work environment and help reduce preventable absences?

The Conference Board of Canada has just released a new briefing, Addressing Employee Absences: A Look at Absence Management in Canadian Organization that benchmarks absence rates, the programs in place and strategies, and steps that organizations need to take to address absenteeism.
