Refers to the habitual non-presence (beyond compensated and/or sick or urgent leaves) of an employee from their job.
Absenteeism can be a result of burnout, harassment, personal commitments such as childcare and/or elder care, mental health issues, disengagement or physical injuries and illnesses. To combat disengagement and create a more proactive workforce, you can channelize your company’s efforts to achieve employee engagement & satisfaction!
Absenteeism and Presenteeism can both be harmful for your company as well as your employees. While presenteeism refers to the act of never taking a leave (despite sickness, ill-health or other problems) and can directly impact long-term productivity for the individual and your company, absenteeism hampers the day-to-day functioning and productivity of the company. To tackle this situation, it is important to find ways to keep your workforce engaged and happy.
