It's surprising to know that the reason behind 65% of employees who take a day off of work is not illness. This unscheduled time off is used to handle their personal issues or to take care of their personal needs, sometimes without regard for the reasons given. This is very unfortunate as it costs a lot to the employers - on average 2.8 million work days each year at a cost of more than $74 billion a year!
In the situation where employees needs to take time off from work, the responsibility of keeping the operations running is left to the managers and supervisors, who then have to deal with the gaps in the work schedule. This can lead to a rift, resentment, friction and even claims of retaliation and interference under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Finding a way to account for employees taking too much personal time off without infringing on their rights is essential-but how can this be accomplished?
Many forward-thinking employers are moving to paid time off or PTO banks to help solve this problem-a smart move considering that the cost and the rate of such unscheduled absences are at the highest point in almost 10 years. Attend this webinar by our expert speaker, Natalie Ivey, MBA, SPHR, to get a comprehensive and practical look at PTO banks and learn how this can translate into a win-win solution for both you and your employees. All it needs is that you properly discuss, plan and implement a PTO bank strategy.
In this informative webinar, Natalie will help you plan to solve absenteeism by developing a contemporary PTO policy. Learn to structure your PTO policy to address both your non-exempt and exempt employees. And also find out best practices that can be implemented to avoid legal suits and to manage leave abuse.
