The Manager's Guide to Reducing Workplace Sickies
Although sickies are often joked about as being an Australian institution, they cost Australia billions of dollars every year. Of course , sick days are inevitable but some sickies are signs of despair and some sickies are discretionary.
Every manager who attends this breakthrough program receives a “managing workplace sickies workbook” written by a psychologist to help reduce the amount of sickies in your organisation.

From time to time, people feel low esteem. Self motivation ebbs and tasks become chores. When people are sick of themselves they often feel more isolated and find it difficult to get back on track.
