Employee Absenteeism is often one of the most persistent obstacles to a company’s productivity and profitability. Absenteeism causes overtime, dissatisfied customers and low morale in other employees expected to cover for their absent colleagues. Absences occur for legitimate reasons such as illness or family emergencies but also due to hangovers, laziness and the desire to be elsewhere when the alarm goes off at 6 AM.
