This thesis entitled “A STUDY OF ABSENTEEISM WITHIN COMPANY X, ITS CAUSES AND THE MANAGEMENT OF IT” is an investigation into the extent of it within Company X, the causes of it, the consequences that it presents and the actions taken by the firm in order to combat it.
The author has been employed by this organisation for the past nine years, three of those in store management capacity and four in head office capacity. Throughout this time, his role has included monitoring, recording and initiating efforts to combat absenteeism in the company. As a result, he is prompted to choose this area of study.
The initial section of this thesis will deal with what is already known about the topic. The primary research will be conducted in the form of a questionnaire. There was an interview organised with the head of Human Resources however, due to time restraints on his behalf this did not take place.
The latter, attempts to highlight absenteeism in Company X and also suggests ways in which policies may be reviewed in order to strive for zero-tolerance level of absenteeism within Company X.
