Use this training program to equip your managers with the skills and knowledge they need to carry out effective return-to-work interviews. The W.A.R.M. approach to dealing with absenteeism illustrated in this film shows managers how to be supportive and motivating, while also emphasizing the employee’s responsibility to come to work.
It illustrates realistic return-to-work interviews with four completely different types of absentees: the genuinely sick person; the stressed single mother; the de-motivated, disabled colleague and the guy who thinks sick leave is part of his holiday entitlement.
The program shows that by using the same W.A.R.M. process, all return-to-work interviews can be carried out in the same effective way.
Train your managers to carry out effective return-to-work interviews, using this program, and individuals in your organization will feel valued and supported. Your managers can satisfy themselves that the employee really is fit to return to work and probe any underlying problem that may be causing the absence. Finally, they will be able to agree upon immediate work priorities and end the interview on a positive, upbeat note.
