Preventing No-Shows


  

The 2007 CCH Unscheduled Absence Survey found that to combat unscheduled absenteeism, U.S. companies offer an average of nine work/life programs, though each varied in its effectiveness, and the most effective programs are not necessarily the most frequently used.

The programs rated highest for reducing unscheduled absences (on a scale of one to five with five being the most effective) are alternative work arrangements (3.6), telecommuting (3.5), compressed work week (3.3), leave for school functions (3.2) and flu shot programs (3.2).

The top five in use are employee assistance plans (72%), flu shot programs (66%), wellness programs (60%), leave for school functions (54%) and alternative work arrangements (54%).
