Abstract

This paper reports the findings of a survey analysis done to identify reasons for absenteeism and suitable remedial mechanisms to curb absenteeism among employees at an organization.Eight criteria that mostly influence employee absenteeism were selected from fifteen criteria obtained through a survey involving twelve employees with highest absenteeism record.In addition, five remedial mechanisms to curb the problem were identified.The final decision on the remedial mechanism believed to be most suitable and efficient in curbing the absenteeism problem was determined using analytic hierarchy process.The findings revealed that uninteresting work, illness and job stress are three top contributors to employee absenteeism while the top three alternatives to curb this problem are through staff recognition, attendance financial bonus, and counseling.
