eBook – The Ultimate Guide to Employee Engagement
This eBook will make a huge difference in your employee engagement. If you have disengaged employees, at a minimum you’re already dealing with major productivity losses. You may also be at risk of higher turnover, increased costs, and lower morale among your engaged employees.
Impact of Attendance Problems
A single employee’s absenteeism problem can have a ripple effect that spreads throughout their unit or department. Other members of their team may need to take on additional duties to compensate for the absent employee’s decreased performance. This can be disruptive to the department workflow, and can also negatively impact other workers’ morale and job satisfaction.
In addition, if the situation requires a replacement worker or causes disruptions that delay project completions, this can result in additional costs to the company.
