Abstract

Discusses the five basic elements of an effective absentee control programme: maintaining detailed attendance records; determining reasons for absence; summarizing and analysing attendance data; taking decisive action to correct the problem; and providing quality leadership to employees. Traditional approaches to controlling absenteeism are discipline at progressive levels to punish excessive absences, and reward, in which various incentive systems are utilized to reward employees for outstanding attendance. Draws examples from US companies.
