Why is absence management important?
Health-related absences are a major cause of costs for companies and in recent years, have increased by approximately 20 percent across Switzerland. Illness-related absences have a number of different consequences for companies:
- More work must be done by employees present
- More time must be spent by HR departments, for example, on finding replacements for shift workers
- High costs caused by work absences
- Poor working atmosphere
- Difficulties meeting deadlines / making deliveries due to lack of capacity
An absence management system systematically records all absences. This makes it possible to analyse whether a professional health management approach could reduce these absences. This can save on costs and reduce long-term absences.
The health management solution offered by VZ spans a wide range of services for company owners, including prevention training, absence management, care and case management as well as support with legal issues.
