Because of competitive pressures, companies can no longer afford to carry unnecessary absence that they may have tolerated in the past. Therefore, many companies are focusing on the issue of eliminating, or at least reducing, unnecessary levels of absence.
While the majority of absences are involuntary, various studies report that voluntary absenteeism could account
for between 20- 40% of all absenteeism.
Absenteeism leads to:
- Reduced employee productivity
- Reduced employee morale, and
- Increased overhead costs

In the modern world change has become the norm. The business, personal and corporate landscapes are constantly evolving and shifting, altering the ways in which people interact, engage and develop. For many, the chaos of change is difficult to manage and some find it hard to cope.

For the first time in history, organisations are experiencing the dynamics of having four distinct generations operating in the workplace at the same time. These are the Silent Generation or Traditionalists (born 1925 to1945), Baby Boomers (born 1946 to 1964), Generation X (born 1965 to 1980) and Generation Y or Millennials as they are popularly known (born 1981 to 1995).

Many factors determine whether a business succeeds or fails, but the “people factor” is the most important. People are a business. Everything a business does, from product and service development, production and delivery, investment, expansion and use of technology, to marketing, sales and account control is people-dependent. How people are managed in a business is critical to its success. If managers are not performing well how can the rest of the team and therefore the company?
