Creating a win-win situation for you and your employees
Dealing quickly and efficiently with any psychological issue your employees may be experiencing results in a win-win situation:
You, the employer, win by minimising absentee costs while maximising the use of valuable trained employees.
Your employee wins by returning to work and avoiding the negative financial and psychological effects of a long term absence.
Why employee psychological health makes business sense
If you have employees absent from work, you will know the costs are huge and a drain on your resources. These costs can be attributed to many factors including:
Wages paid to absent employees
High-cost replacement workers (overtime pay for other employees and/or temporary workers)
Administrative costs of managing absenteeism
Personal injury claims
Malingering / fraudulent claims
Indirect costs include:
Poor quality of output resulting from overtime fatigue or under-staffing
Excess manager time – dealing with discipline or finding suitable cover
Poor morale among employees who have to “fill in” or do extra work to cover absent co-workers.
Safety issues created by inadequately trained employees filling in for others, rushing to catch up after arriving as a replacement, etc.
And then there are the expensive intangible costs
The reputation of your organisation
Errors due to temps or less skilled staff covering key roles or activities
Your best and brightest having to step down to cover – and possibly suffering stress themselves as result
