Reducing Absentism

Reducing absentism

Absentism is a major cost factor for all industrial organizations. Thereby average absentism can vary strongly between teams and work groups – even though they work in the same branch, with the same product or at the same construction site. Very often different types of leadership and associated trust between leaders and followers explain much variance in different absentism rates. For a huge industrial construction site with mostly monotonious job descriptions we developed a customized empirical measure for determining most important sources of variance of absentism. Knowing the specific causes of absentism at a specific construction site with its specific culture, we trained leaders in customized impulse workshops. Our success was that within 12 months abesentism rate at this construction site was reduced by more than 1.5 percent which saved the organization a huge amount of personnel costs.

Digital sales tools

Digital tools dramatically change the way sales forces present their company's offering whilst improving the availability and the quality of information showcased. Successful digitalization requires integration of data sources and presentation tools.


Safe by motivation

The best industrial organizations aim for a 'zero accident' safety record. To achieve this, they need rules and procedures - but they also need to engender a safety culture inside the company, shared and supported by everyone.
