Putting an end to the abuse of absence and sick leave
Presented by Andrew Levy
Sick and tired of employees who are never there? A cure is at hand!
Every employer has them, and every employer is ill with the cost and the inconvenience arising from the misuse and abuse of sick leave. This practical morning workshop will guide you through the aches and pains you suffer from abuse of leave of any sort and show you how to treat the causes of this dread disease that attacks your productivity and profits.
Do you feel ill when you think of employees who are never there?
Are you suffering from an overdose of dodgy medical certificates?
Is bad timekeeping infecting your business?
You need to see a specialist – Let Dr Andrew Levy make you feel better!
Key takeaways from the Absenteeism Seminar
Do you recognise any of these symptoms? The Friday and Monday duckers and divers, the every certificate a different doctor specialist, the employee who takes a day a month – and then there are the latecomers and early finishers.
You could be losing as much as 10% or more of your total labour cost per annum to absence and leave abuse. The good news is that there is a cure, and you, the employer, have rights. Attend this seminar, and you can turn the tide on the absent workforce, fire the slackers and nail deserters, and make dodgy doctors take a dose of their own medicine. The cure is at hand; this is your opportunity to answer all your questions and hear how other employers manage the problem. You are not alone!
South Africa is plagued by the epidemic of sick leave abuse, costing an estimated 85 million workdays a year, which is six times bigger than the time lost through strikes. Each day lost costs you a minimum of twice that day’s pay. Isn’t it time to cure this disease? Are you too nice for too long and letting employees get away without the proper treatment to cure this ill?
You may not have a strike this year, but you will have abuse of sick leave – attend this seminar to recover from this contagious disease which infects entire workforces if untreated.
Who should attend the Absenteeism Seminar?
Attending the absenteeism seminar is just what the doctor ordered – it is a prescription for all the aches and pains of absenteeism and attendance. Attending this seminar will make you feel better.
