Is absence getting your back up? (webinar)

After a period where absence levels have been declining, this Personnel Today webinar will bring you up to date with the latest results following the publication of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development’s (CIPD) Annual Absence Management Survey Report 2013, in partnership with Simplyhealth.

Featuring a detailed look at the survey’s headline findings, this free online event will look at absence levels in the public versus private sector, an assessment of absence’s cost to the UK economy and at the conditions contributing to UK sickness absence, focusing on musculoskeletal disorders.
