THE PROBLEM with absences

The rise in employee absence has a huge impact on the bottom line of UK businesses. Despite 70% of businesses admitting that absence has a direct effect on profitability, more than a third of these have no idea how much absentees have cost them.


Although very few are pro-actively monitoring the cost to their business, an increasing number are enhancing their health and wellbeing strategies, which helps reduce absenteeism and increases levels of employee productivity. 

The Absence Management system is a 24/7 absence tracker which ensures that no employee’s absence call is missed, while also keeping managers and HR constantly up-to-date via instant text and email alerts.

With secure access to your own real-time data, HR can see the overall absence picture at any time. On the basis of agreed absence ‘triggers’,

  • contact is made with your employees
  • the team then liaises with HR and with any existing in-house programmes
  • allowing employees to benefit from maximum support as early as possible

MEC can also dovetail the use of your employee benefits such as PMI. A proactive approach keeps employers constantly up-to-date, helping them make timely decisions.

We can also assist Employers to calculate the cost of absence. Get in touch today to find out how we can help support you.
