Absence management can be a huge concern for businesses and we understand that long term or persistent short term staff absences can become a real problem for employers.

One of the most important parts of dealing with any kind of absence is adopting the right procedure and Gorvins approach is to provide robust advice on how to deal with these issues properly, taking into account the employee’s circumstances.
