What is the absenteeism rate in this company and how have you always managed it? First I can say that the absenteeism rate in this company has been an issue for some time. As far as I can tell you it’ s not that big but either it isn’ t small. Some of the employees go absent without prior notice but some always ask for permits from the management team. We always determine these rates annually and even monthly so as to determine them in relation to a specific period.
