All the training materials necessary to run your own, ‘Welcome Back to Work Meetings’ 1 hour training session:

Following any period of absence, a welcome back meeting should be held between the employee and their manager.

A quality ‘Welcome Back to Work’ meeting can help promote good attendance that will not only benefit the organisation, but all parties concerned.

It is very important that this discussion takes place and that both the manager and employee discuss the absence and the employees overall wellbeing.

Attendance processes are designed to help organisations serve their customers by encouraging the high standards of attendance normally achieved and maintained by the vast majority of employees, so that a reliable staffing base can be maintained.

Managers can have a positive influence on sick absence levels within the organisation. This is done through creating the right environment where employees want to come to work, part of this process is completing a quality welcome back to work meeting following an absence. Managers will need to prepare prior to the meeting, hold an effective thorough meeting to address all points and ensure any follow up issues are carried out.
