Archie Anderson at Lunch with DriveThruHR this Friday, Sept. 6

We are returning back from a relaxing Labor Day weekend and are very much looking forward to this week! Optis President, Archie Anderson will be a guest speaker on DriveThruHR this Friday, September 6 at 11:00 am MST / 12 pm CST, and will be speaking with co-hosts William Tincup, SPHR, Bryan Wempen and Nisha Raghavan. The entire speaker line up at DriveThruHR this week is awesome, to say the least. Here are the guests speakers:

On Friday, Archie will be speaking about several aspects of employee absence – the costs, the risks, what employee absenteeism looks like today and why it’s keeping HR up at night. Here are a few tidbits of information about employee absence before the show –

  • Absence is expensive – it costs U.S. employers $100 billion annually
  • Employee leave is increasing – 16.5% of the entire workforce used FMLA in an 18-month period
  • Leave is hard on your staff – 63% of HR professionals report morale problems with employees covering for absent employees
