A better understanding of absences for better employee management
You will have understood that absent employees are an undesirable cost for companies. This cost comes mainly from overwork, which in turn leads to an increase in absenteeism. Whatever the causes of its increase, a high rate of absence can become expensive for your organisation. In fact, absenteeism has a major impact on the functioning of the company. With a reduced workforce, your employees are faced with an increased workload and a decrease in their resilience. Operational planning problems increase, management loses credibility, and turnover costs become staggering (unforeseen recruitment, training to be provided to newcomers, etc.). Gradually, you lose efficiency and customer satisfaction suffers. There are now several methods of prevention. One of the most obvious is the analysis of the working conditions and mental health of your employees. To do so, Balencio supports you in a simple and sustainable way thanks to its HRIS software.
Reducing absenteeism in companies
Whether in Belgium, Luxembourg or France, companies cannot escape the real scourge of absenteeism. It is an omnipresent reality in the labour market. According to a study conducted by Partena Professional, employees have had an absence rate ranging from 26.1% to 33.1% over the last three years. There are many reasons why an employee may be absent for a long or short period of time. The most frequent causes are sick leave, absence due to an unfavourable working environment and work-life imbalance. Statutory leave is a right that also plays a role in calculating workers' absences. It is now estimated that stress related to these factors leads to up to 60% of days of absence. These figures are significant and show how important it is to understand how employees function in terms of absence. On the other hand, workplace stress is defined by the existing balance between the demands of the company and the ability of the staff to meet these demands. According to a study carried out by the Antwerp Management School, 83% of workers say that they accept additional tasks that would cause excessive stress and exceed the fatigue threshold. This situation must be taken into account as it can lead to sick leave (as a reminder: sick leave is not considered to be legal days off, although both are included in the percentage of absences).
Act proactively to manage your human capital
Our approach is predictive and long-term oriented. Thanks to the Balencio platform, you can ask your employees about their state of well-being and vitality. Thanks to this software, each employee can give his own feedback on the situation experienced within your company. This data will enable you to assess the constraints faced by your human resources more specifically.
Focusing on human resources management also means focusing on stress management. In our experience, stress is often an indicator of an internal policy that needs to be revitalised or even modernised. To limit the negative effects of stress, it is important to opt for caring management and human management strategies. In order to analyse precisely the imbalance to which your employees are subjected and to provide the appropriate services, Balencio offers you a digital platform that collects feedback from your staff. With the Balencio dashboard, you provide reliable digital data to HR departments and management committees on the causes of absenteeism in your organisation. In fact, we have set up a skimming system that allows you to identify the specific problems linked to each of your departments, teams or job categories.
Our experts accompany you every step of the way and guide you through the deciphering of this data. Once the solutions have been found, you will be able to put in place a viable action plan for long-term improvement.
Absenteeism prevention and its benefits
Thanks to our 360° vision, you will be able to address the various problems with your employees in a constructive and interactive manner. The implementation of an action plan, for a given period or year, is necessary to reduce the number of absentees (whether long or short-term absences). The indicators included in our modules allow you to target your strategies and find sustainable solutions. For your employees, this means increased motivation and improved individual productivity. For your departments, managers and HR managers, the results will help you to develop an effective and sustainable absenteeism prevention policy. With the optimal collaboration of your different departments, you opt for an increase in engagement, a growth in resilience, an improvement in well-being at work and thus a reduction in the number of absentees. For your company, this implies a reduction in absenteeism as well as the direct and indirect costs associated with it. An average 5% reduction in the overall absenteeism rate can represent, depending on your size, a saving of several hundred thousand euros. Thanks to our HRIS software and our modernised dashboard, you no longer need to randomly analyse the percentage given by the indicators; at a glance, you can see the situation of your employees and the company.
