I agree with Kathryn, this is a problem that affects the efficiency of the company and overall productivity and increases healthcare costs. We find absenteeism to be a high result of poor job satisfaction, low employee motivation and unhealthy employees. This is a focus in our program which has shown nothing but positive results with companies. I work for Success Industries who has developed a program to minimize this type of behavior by creating a work environment that they want to go to. I think this is key, get your employees to WANT to be at work.
