Most companies seem to be losing ground when it comes to employee absenteeism yet the responsibility for managing it has fallen primarily on immediate supervisors.

The supervisors are often the only people who are aware that a certain employee is absent.  They are in the best position to understand the circumstances surrounding an individual’s absence an to notice a problem at an early stage.  Therefore, their active involvement in the company’s absence procedure is pivotal to the overall effectiveness and future success of an absence policy program.
