Culture and employees
It is important that employees feel happy in a safe and healthy working environment. Consequently, we pay a lot of attention to them if an incident occurs in the form of an industrial accident.
Absenteeism is a measure of employees' health and safe working conditions but also of engagement and the responsibilities arising from this.
From that perspective, we go further in our responsibilities as an employer than is strictly necessary although our experience is that often the legislation does not assist in this since it focuses more on protecting privacy and does not particularly address the effects of absence on well-being and the relationship with the employer.
Close attention to absenteeism reduces its rate and means problems can be discussed. This benefits the atmosphere at work and cuts the cost of absenteeism.
