How to Calculate Absence and Why it is Important (for HR)

This course is aimed at HR directors, HR managers, HR business partners and HR admin staff, and anyone else who is interested in beginning to undertake this type of activity, to reduce employee absence and associated costs, with all the competitive advantage and improved profitability which that tends to bring.

Other consultants make data analysis sound scary, complicated and expensive, and offer their ongoing support. This course aims to reduce the fear factor, and show you simpler, inexpensive ways of making a start in this area. Many businesses do this almost entirely without consultancy support, but if you do want to pursue potential data analytics consultancy partners, this course will help you to play a better initial role in that partnership-building activity.
