Staff Absence Management

Reduce the number of days lost to absence.

Staff absence is the biggest cause of budget overspend. Through our online portal you can capture absence data and view patterns of absence through easy to read heat maps and charts.

We will then review your absence data with recommendations around individual issues and an action plan for managing and reducing absence in your school.

If you would like, a member of our HR consultancy team will support and train managers on-site, conducting absence review meetings, advising on best practice and supporting the on-going development of a culture focusing on reliability and attendance. 

With Strictly Education’s HR support we devised a new staff absence policy, implemented return to work interviews and closely monitored individual patterns of absence with follow up meetings with staff. As a result attendance has significantly improved.
