Absences can be expensive. It’s estimated that on average, companies lose hundreds of pounds, per employee, every year due to sick days. From the recruitment fees for finding temporary cover, to the extra salary you’ll be covering while your colleague is away, the costs can mount up. But, with the right support, they don’t have to.
Healix can tell you how much absence is costing your business and put simple processes in place to reduce that figure. With our cutting-edge technology, you’re able to forecast costs, allocate resources, and manage shift patterns.
We work with FirstCare, a leading absence management specialist. They have the UK’s largest absence database, covering more than 185,000 employees, and are actively involved in improving national standards for absence management.
FirstCare adopts a simple and effective process to manage absences, limiting risk, increasing productivity, and cutting costs. Here are some of the ways they achieve this:
Your absence management service will begin from the first day your colleague is off sick, so you can offer support as early as possible.
All of their processes are legally-compliant, reducing the risk to you.
Best practice return to work process
Returning to work after a period of absence can be difficult. FirstCare offers the support you need to make the transition as smooth as possible.
