Dear suresh

 

it is impossible for any employer to remove absentiesm totally, but by certains measures the rate of absentiesm can be controlled to some extent. u can apply those measures .

1. best employee selection procedure.

2. facility of residence & transportation.

3. good  & flexible working conditions.

4. detailed & effective induction & orientation programme.

5. disciplinery actions.

6. regular counselling.

apart form above measures you can introduce attendance awards & other incentive schemes for regular employees, motivational programme.

it is very important to let the employee know the ill  effects of absentiesm.

Form a absenteeism committee (Members should be workmen for dealing workmen Absenteeism). Ask the concern workmen to visit the absentee and their families of those who are involved in chronic absenteeism. Agenda of the visit should be pre designed for effectiveness

Group incentives based on attendance. Peer group pressure can minimize absenteeism effectively.
