When a colleague is off sick, the impact can be significant. Whether it’s arranging cover or rescheduling meetings, employee absence is a problem experienced by every organisation.

Our clinician-led approach will help you to put processes in place to streamline your operations, improving your efficiency, and helping your HR team to reduce the cost to your business.

Why is employee absence management important?

Employee 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 provide absence management solutions to reduce that figure. With our cutting-edge technology, you’re able to forecast costs, allocate resources, and manage shift patterns. 

Adopting the right approach to absenteeism won’t only save you time and money; it’ll reduce risk, increase productivity and promote a healthy and engaged workforce.

Healix’s approach to absence management

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:

Early intervention

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.
