Absenteeism caused by ill health costs German companies billions of euros annually. In view of increasing global competition, companies have understood that absenteeism constitutes a considerable burden on the competitiveness of German business. They often neglect to see, however, that factors such as an unhealthy working environment, authoritarian styles of management and organization, and unfavorable working conditions are often the cause. This publication shows how a participative corporate culture and employee-oriented style of
management can reduce absenteeism and the costs it incurs. The authors want to shed new light on the correlation between work and health. Extending their focus beyond the discussion on continued wage payment in the case of illness, they concentrate on the following points:
- promotion of a company health policy
- health-promoting management styles
- cooperation among staff and management.
