If your employees are missing work, and you can’t figure out why, these are a few things
to consider. Did you know the average number of work days missed by a full-time employee diagnosed with clinical depression is twice as much as someone without it? Consistent absences are also connected to things like poor eating habits, poor health, financial strains, relationship complications and other emotional stresses. If you find that wellness issues are the main reason your employees are missing work, what programs do you have in place to address them?

Try thinking of fun ways to get your employees to exercise or quit smoking. Many organizations hold their own “Biggest Loser” competitions to motivate their workforce to get into shape. You might also offer an Employee Assistance Program for those who are struggling with issues that require a professional counselor.
