    Absence management

Sustainable reduction of absence costs

As an employer you often have to deal with absence due to sickness of your staff. Absence has many shapes and forms like short-term, long-term, repeating. As absence causes additional costs and loss of revenues, it is important to hold grip on absence.

Obviously, you have thought of insuring your absence risks, but this has not reduced your absence rate itself. In the field of absence there is a lot of regulation - e.g. Act on Improvement Gatekeeper (Wet Verbetering Poortwachter). Also, many providers play their role in reducing absence (Occupational Health Service, UWV, reintegration specialists, etc.).

Bastinck & van Doesum offers an Absence Management program which gives you the opportunity to deal with absence on a full scale. By looking after correct execution of absence procedures and monitoring absence cases, the absence rate in your organization will be sustainably lower. Our range of services will take care of these processes, relieve you of the administrative hassle and will result in lower costs.
