Topic- To investigate how employees absenteeism impact productivity of anenterprise. With reference to case study of “Americana group, Kuwait”.INTRODUCTIONAbsenteeism is term that called as an employee intentional or habitual absence fromwork. It is frequent lack of attendance at work without any valid cause (Kerzner, 2017). Thus,high absenteeism within the enterprise can affect the growth of an enterprise. Herein,responsibility for managing absenteeism has fallen primarily on immediate supervisors. Employee retention is pivotal to the overall effectiveness and future success to absencepolicy or program. In simple terms, this is defined as “Absence of an employee from work”.However, this leads to issues as back logs, piling of work and thus work delay. It can havenegative impact on morale and productivity of employees. The present report is based on to investigate the high number of staff absence indepartment. Henceforth, report will draw aims and objectives on the basis of given topic. Thus,research methodologies will be defined to select proper method to research study. Lastly,recommendation will be given to cope up with issue of high absenteeism of employees as thishas impact on productivity and profitability of the enterprise. TASK 11.1 Justification of given topic and its contribution to strategic aims. Absenteeism is serious workplace problem and an expensive occurrence for bothemployers and employee seemingly unpredictable in nature. This is one of the major problemthat faced by almost all employers of today (Mok, Shen and Yang, 2015). It is big barriers forany kind of enterprise as its affect on growth of an organisation. However, this provide inverseeffect on organisation growth and development. Additionally, researcher has asserted that high staff turnover can lead to fatigueexperienced by incumbent staff that leads to poor service delivery. Control on the rate ofabsenteeism can be exercised with help of immediate manager through the human resourcesection in relation to duration and terms of absence pertaining to salary and terms of service.Additionally, the main objective of this research is to identify the cause behind the absenteeismof employees and its impact on productivity of the enterprise. 1
1.2 Discuss scope, aim and objective of research.The present research study is based on the aims and objectives of research. Therefore, itsdefined in below contexted manner as are- Aim- To investigate how employees absenteeism impact productivity of an productiondepartment. With reference to case study of “Americana group, Kuwait”.Objectives-To identify the reasons for absenteeism among employees within production departmentof Americana group, Kuwait”. To access the factor that aids to motivates the employees to enhance employee retention. To measure out the employee absenteeism level in Americana group, Kuwait”. To establish steps that supports to decrease the level of absenteeism in quoted enterprise. To provide suggestive measures to reduce negative impact of employee absenteeism onproductivity and profitability of enterprise. 1.3 Justify the topic of investigation.The present report is based on to investigate the impact of employee absenteeism onproductivity and profitability of enterprise. Therefore, it is serious workplace problem that is anexpensive occurrence for both employers and employees that is seemingly unpredictable innature (McCaffery, 2018). This is one of the major problem that faced by almost all employers.Thus, it can lead to issues as work delay, piling of work and back logs. Huge absenteeism from workplace leads to decline in productivity and increase inworkplace accidents that may have negative consequences for an organisation. Thus, it can bestated that high absenteeism and labour turnover is an indication of ineffective productivity andgrowth to an enterprise. 1.4 formulation of project research methodologies inclusive of project structure and researchbase.Research methodologies defined as tools and techniques that are used for the purpose ofcollecting data and information for doing analysis of data for the future. Data can be collectedthrough different sources that provide relevant information for achieving objectives of business. Research Type:- There are two types of research qualitative and quantitative. In this researcherwill use qualitative research for obtaining information for gaining better results for the future.2
Qualitative information cannot be expressed in numerical terms whereas quantitative informationis expressed in numerical terms that help in providing effective results in doing further study(Doppelt, 2017). As qualitative approach is taken with the help of survey questionnaire data willbe collected for further analysis. Research philosophy:- It isdealing with thenature and development of knowledge that will berequired for carry out research for the future. It comprises of two types interpretivism andpositivism. Interpretivism provide small sample to researcher for conducting further study. Onthe other hand, positivism is highly structured and providing large samples to researcher forgetting better results while conducting research. Researcher will use interpretivism philosophyfor achieving objective of the study. Research Design:- It includes various process and methods that are designed for collecting andmeasuring problem that will be occurred during research. It consist of two types as exploratoryand descriptive research (Pollack and Pollack, 2015). In exploratory approach problem will beidentified by researcher for the purpose of getting effective results. On the other hand, indescriptive various methods and procedures will be used for investigating data and informationfor further study. Researcher will used descriptive technique that will be used for providingbetter results in the further study. Data Collection:- It refers to the process of collecting and measuring information throughdifferent sources that help in evaluating outcomes to researcher. This consist of two typesprimary and secondary collection of data. Primary method involve collecting informationthrough survey. Data that have been collected through this approach is real time data as collectedby investigator itself and provide valuable data and information for further research (Kazadi,Lievens and Mahr, 2016). Secondary data will be collected through books and journal and thedata that have been collected is second hand information. In this researcher will use primarymethod of collection by using survey. Sampling:- It is the method of taking sample from the given population for the purpose ofgetting desired result in the future. There are different types of sampling such as stratified,cluster, systematic or random sampling. In this random sampling will be used by using nonprobabilistic technique by researcher. As in random sampling sample is being collectedrandomly by researcher for conducting further study. Sample size of 20 respondents is taken intoconsideration as questions will be asked from employers of the company. 3
Data analysis:- It is the process of converting data and information that will be gathered byresearcher by drawing conclusion that help in making decision for the company. In this thematicanalysis will be used by the researcher (Bryson, 2018). Ethical Consideration:- This is the most important part of research. As data and informationthat will be collected remain confidential by researcher so that there is less chances of error whileconducting research. It will be taken into consideration that respondents will participate inproviding accurate information to the researcher. Activities time & scaleThis is defined as strategic plan that aids to identify and conduct research activities inproper manner. However, the overall research structure will aids to identification of criticalknowledge gap and coordinate a common research agenda. Thus, its defined in below contexedmanner as are- 4
