Return to Work Interviews

Managing employee sick leave is one of the biggest challenges for many managers. Return to Work Interviews are consistently rated as one of the most effective methods of managing absenteeism levels.

Return to Work Interviews:

When conducting a Return to Work Interview, the manager should remember that the employee should feel you are supporting them by holding the meeting, employees don't need to be overly aware of the structure of the meeting. Managers should also avoid being judgemental and are advised not to make any assumptions about the employee's absence.
