How well is long-term sickness absence managed in your school?
Long-term absence can not only result in a significant impact and cost to an organisation but it can often also be challenging to manage. The longer someone is off sick, the less likely they are ever to make a successful return to work. To manage such situations effectively, employers need to keep in touch with employees on sick leave in a sensitive way and have a return-to-work strategy in place for those returning after prolonged absence.
This short and free webinar is the first in our ‘How to overcome the challenges of managing long-term absence’ series for school managers and HR practitioners, and concentrates on the key areas of compliance, policy and practice to help you with the real-world aspects of managing this process.
The webinar will focus on:
How to ensure compliance with your policy and statutory requirements
Managing and minimising the impact on all stakeholders
Key principles of managing a successful return to work
What happens when there is no reasonable prospect of return
Delegates are invited to send any questions they would like answered in advance to inform the session content. There will also be some time during the webinar to raise queries.
