Keep in Regular Contact with People Who are Off Sick

If somebody has phoned in sick, phone them back later in the day to find out how they are getting on.  It shows that you care as a manager, and it is a great technique for reducing absence rates.

It also works well for people who take off a Monday, because of a hangover and then feel they have to take off Tuesday as well to make it look genuine.
