A mandatory step in any business, absence management can quickly become time consuming for HR departments.

Care management by Swiss Risk & Care: Discover our PREVENTIO solution, or how to put your absent employees at the centre of the game and encourage their return to work.

Absences: A financial and organisational challenge

Preventio : a flexible and efficient solution

With the growing increase in the number of absences, and legal obligations for compensation by the employer, companies are increasingly exposed to high costs associated with absenteeism. If the direct costs of an absence are often projected (daily allowances, replacement worker’s salary, etc.) the indirect costs, which are 3 to 5 times higher than direct ones, are often overlooked: productivity loss, team disorganisation, delivery delays, stress and deteriorating working conditions, etc.
To limit and even reduce this steady increase, Swiss Risk & Care has developed the Preventio service to take action beginning on the first day of absence. Often, no action is taken during the waiting time of your insurance programme and the link with the absent employee is broken. Also, Preventio, through a robust, well defined process, enables care managers at Swiss Risk & Care to play a mediating role and anticipate the return of the employee.

If the essence of our role as broker is to bring you the insurance programme that best suits your needs, the fact remains that there are several options. We can shed new light on an often static situation, which is far from optimal in terms of costs.



For your accident cover, you can clearly improve the performance of your accident insurance through a Complementary Accident Insurance Policy and strengthen the HR policy for your employees.

Concerning daily allowances for illness, different models are available to you, and it's not always easy to make sense of them all. By using the history of your absence data, monitored through our tool and our CareDesk service, our actuary teams are able to conduct a detailed analysis of your claims and investigate different scenarios for your business. Depending on your circumstances and your ability to maintain more or less of the risk, our experts will help you discover how to save money!

Swiss Risk & Care operates with external specialists to support our customers in addressing this topic.
After a long work stoppage, we help you set up an arrangement that favours your employee’s effective return to work.

This return must be foreseen and prepared for. It is therefore important to always maintain a connection with the absent employees, to assess the situation and define the key steps with them for their gradual return to the company. This period should also enable each party to pull back with respect to the terms of the return to work. Often, a change in position makes perfect sense, and will facilitate your employee’s return to work.
