These webinars are designed to provide managers and HR professionals with the knowledge and confidence to manage ill-health and sickness absence fairly and objectively in line with organisational policies. They focus on the importance of supporting employees using a positive and empathic approach as well as the need to take appropriate action to minimise impact at work. The webinars cover a range of topics including how to manage short-term persistent absence and long-term absence. They also cover particularly challenging issues such as managing disability, stress and mental health as well as adjustments to practice in relation to Covid-19 where appropriate.
The first webinar focuses on equipping the fundamentals of managing sickness and ill-health.
The second webinar gives an opportunity to apply the learning from the first webinar to a series of case studies on a range of challenging issues, as well as showing progression through the informal and formal stages of managing sickness. There is an option to extend the webinar to allow participants to prepare and conduct a return to work interview or review meeting in small groups.
