It’s important to respond to employee absence with sensitivity and compassion. But that doesn’t mean avoiding conversations about absence altogether. Doing so is in nobody’s best interests.

It can feel overwhelming to discuss and manage absence. Sometimes your managers will have to conduct sensitive conversations with employees who may feel vulnerable or worried.
