Abstract

The Small Firms Association announced in May 2006 that Absenteeism from work costs small business €692 million per annum.

The above statement proves that workplace attendance and absenteeism are of fundamental importance for business survival and it is never too soon to think about how to encourage it. Absenteeism effects all organisations whether they are public, private, large or small.

This dissertation will look at what causes absenteeism, the need for organisations to measure attendance and its relationship with culture and motivation in the workplace.

Finally, this dissertation will then be presented to Senior Management upon where it will be anticipated that a formal absence control process will be inaugurated into GlaxoSmithKline.
