Abstract

Few studies explore the phenomenon of presenteeism in particular from a managerial perspective.

A group of managers in one organisation within the hospitality industry.

The collection of qualitative data through semi structured interviews with seven participants using a methodological approach of a case study under a phenomenological paradigm.

Two overall themes emerged, that presenteeism was an expectation within the industry in order for career progression as ‘face time’ was indicative of commitment and this behaviour was now being driven by the managerial team through Social Learning Theory.

Presenteeism was perceived by the managerial team as a business expectation and necessity with minimal consideration of the impact of presenteeism on employee well-being.
