Private Sector Absence management: The key to greater productivity and profitability

Did you know that absenteeism costs the UK economy £18 billion each year?

We work with organisations from all sectors – including transport, food, logistics, construction and financial services – to improve absence levels. And, this year, we’re introducing new features to our IT platform that will help to reduce absence levels further.
We do this by:
  •      Giving you access to real-time, accurate data.
  •      Addressing the hidden causes of absence.
  •      Helping you create a plan to reduce absence.
For example, we helped Bouygues Energies & Services, an integrated engineering and energy performance provider, save £500,000 on its absence spend.
Paul Cadman, HR director at the company, said: “When we began using FirstCare’s systems we found the data capture and reporting tools a great asset.”
