Webinar Recording: Employee Productivity — Presenteeism and Absenteeism

DMECResources, VEF Archives

Employee productivity is impacted by employee absences from the workplace (absenteeism) as well as employees coming to work who are not operating at 100% (presenteeism). What drives this and how can you anticipate how it might be affecting your workplace? It can be informative to conduct a simple self-analysis of the business you manage — the industry, the products, or services created and delivered, and most significantly, by the demographics of your workforce. Many factors impact employee health and well-being and identifying those factors can have an impact on your bottom line.

During this session, we discussed some of the biggest drivers of presenteeism — behavioral health, mental health, and substance abuse. Often, it is easier for us to understand a physical situation than it is to understand a behavioral situation.
