According to the CIPD, employee absence has risen again, from 6.6 days to 6.9 days, per employee each year.

In association with the CIPD, Cascade Human Resources Ltd are teaming up with Paul Addy from Positive People and Caroline Acton from Consilia Legal to bring you a FREE information packed webinar that addresses all aspects of absence management.
In this webinar, our expert line up will cover:
Your complete guide to reducing absence and achieving your 2016 target!
