      This module provides support in managing absence from work (sometimes referred to as absence management).

      It is targeted at anyone with people management responsibilities within organisations operating in Scotland and should take 45mins to an hour to complete.

      The module highlights some of the benefits of actively managing attendance including support for staff with long-term health conditions, good practise to be adopted and a variety of valuable resources to help you implement these. You will also find out about further support available through Healthy Working Lives and elsewhere.

      Absence in your organisation may currently be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Whilst this course was developed before the current situation, the principles and support remain relevant at this time for those with non, covid-related absence.

      However if the absence or time off is covid-related then visit our dedicated COVID-19 updates page here for further advice and support and follow us at @Healthy_WL
