HR Magazine - Compassionate absence management can 'significantly impact' on employer brand, report finds

HR Magazine - Compassionate absence management can 'significantly impact' on employer brand, report finds | Good Management | Scoop.it

How we manage absence can impact the employer brand, advocacy and engagement. 

 

Managers who feel under pressure with multiple priorties sometimes forget the power of the the return to work meeting and phrases such as 'how are you feeling now?   'Its good to have you back' 'You were missed' 'While you were away xyz happened....'

 

When I was at Nationwide this genuine caring approach, in combination with helping employees distinguishing between being 'unwell' and being 'unfit for work', supported our engagement agenda, and also  significantly reduced absence levels.

5/3 gets engaged

5/3 gets engaged | Good Management | Scoop.it

This interesting, if rather long article, gives a detailed account of the employee engagement strategy of this US based bank. It's worth reading in full if you can.

 

In less than two days, a corporate employee-engagement program changed Robert Shaffer's life.  It’s just what chief executive officer Kevin T. Kabat wanted to hear. He believes employee engagement is critical if the bank is to successfully leverage its model as a super-regional institution that can help its customers capitalize quickly on opportunities through its 15 affiliates spanning 12 states. 

 

“We haven’t lowered the accountability that we hold people to,” Kabat says. “What we’re raising is the bar of quality of life and balance. And if you think about that, people make work decisions based on life reasons, and vice versa. And what we’d like to do is leverage both. And if I can have a healthier employee base which is more engaged because they feel like we care about them holistically, I benefit from that.”
