Concern about absence meeting

Good morning [Employee's Name],

I wanted to speak with you about some concerns we have regarding your attendance at work.

Recently, there have been several instances where your attendance has been below the expected standard. For example, since [insert date], you have been absent on [specific dates or number of occasions]. This level of absence is not in line with our company's expectations and affects the productivity and morale of the team.

We understand that some absences might be due to unavoidable sick leave, and we want to address this with sensitivity. It's important that we maintain a positive and efficient work environment for everyone while supporting our employees' health and well-being.

One thing we can do is set up a plan to help you improve your attendance. This could include setting a clear threshold for acceptable absences, discussing any underlying issues that may be causing your absences, or even creating a performance improvement plan focused on attendance. It's important that we work together to ensure that you meet the expectations we have for all of our employees regarding attendance.

We will set up a meeting to discuss your plan in more detail. During this meeting, we can also talk about any support or adjustments you might need, especially if there are health-related issues contributing to your absences. We want to ensure you feel supported and that we can help you manage your attendance effectively.

Thank you for your understanding and commitment to improving your attendance. We want to see you succeed here, and we're here to support you in that process.
