Every organization deals with absenteeism. If employees are sick a few days a year, the consequences are manageable. A bigger problem is when employees are sick for long periods of time. The number of chronically ill people has risen sharply in recent years. In 2017, 50% of the Dutch population has a chronic condition. This percentage continues to increase in the coming years. More and more employees will take long-term leave due to chronic illness. This is a problem for the employee, but certainly also for you as an employer.

The government has arranged through the Gatekeeper Improvement Act that employer and employee are both responsible for the prompt return to work. The reasons for treatment vary from employee to employee, but it is certain that complaints pass more quickly and better results are achieved if you take an integrated approach.
