Absenteeism is an area of concern for most organisations as it means a great cost for the company. This paper will compile and discuss the most relevant areas that any organisation should take into consideration when analysing absenteeism. Absence management should be tailored to the organisational context and therefore, a detailed analysis of quantitative and qualitative data should be carried out before being able to decide the best policies and procedures for a specific company. This research will focus its attention on a case study for a medical organisation in the Irish market with the purpose of understanding absenteeism in a multicultural context and suggesting possibilities to better manage that behavior. The essence of using the case study to support this research is to replicate the process that HR should follow to better manage absence hoping that this research supports HR professionals on the ground.
