Nationwide Day 1 Sickness Absence Service

Here at Healthier Workforce, we offer a ‘day 1 sickness absence’ service for businesses nationwide. This sickness absence management system uses our online, telephone and consultative services, and allows business owners to track and record their employees’ sick days. With a holistic approach like this, employers can change their workplace system to reduce sickness absences, instead of simply producing reactive solutions to the loss of income.

The ‘day 1 sickness absence’ system involves a trained operator speaking to the employee when they call in sick. They will confirm the reason for absence, decide on a return to work date, and then record the information. An experienced occupational health adviser is available as well, and they are able to provide personal care advice, recommend a GP, advise when it is necessary to go to A&E, and in the worst case call 999.
