What is the connection between leadership and sick leave?

Do you know that every worker in Croatia is absent on average 55 days, of which more than 13 days are spent on sick leave?

The majority of employers "blame" the workers or doctors for the increased number of absences caused by sick days, but the fact is that part of the "blame" is borne by the employers themselves - usually their immediate superior managers.

Research on absenteeism shows that more than 80% of employees have been on sick leave at least once due to stress at work, with more than a third pointing out that stress is directly caused by the management style. 

Managers' competencies, their personality, the way they communicate and the way they recognize the value of their employees directly affect work performance, but also employee absenteeism.

In this workshop, we will show in detail how absenteeism affects your organization and how to recognize the connection between absences and management style, as well as how you can influence a change in behavior and thereby improve business results.

You will leave this workshop with practical tips on how to measure absenteeism with the help of several metrics that will show you if you really have a problem, how you should act, especially in relation to the way people are managed.

Maja Vučić will lead this workshop in collaboration with Sandra Ćupurdija.
