Ellipse has launched InteractPlus a unique
product combining classic income protection with absence management in one
integrated package, for companies insuring between five and 300 employees.
Early intervention has long been cited as the key
to effective group income protection but, even though attempts have been made
to encourage absence to be reported early, early has never really amounted to
fewer than several weeks after an absence has started. This is still more than
enough time for an absence mindset to become embedded and make returning to
work a real challenge. InteractPlus overcomes this problem by collecting
information about every absence, as soon as it happens – no other group income
protection product captures absence data from day one.
A new report
'Sick Notes', covering research by Ellipse and Professor Cary Cooper
highlights disparities between peer and manager attitudes to absence, finds
presenteeism is as much a problem as people taking sickies and recommends five
steps to getting a grip on absence management.
