Abstract:

The 1995 Ship Production Symposium theme of COMPETITIVENESS is very timely. Competitive forces for new shipbuilding work are fierce. Any factor affecting competitive advantage which is not pursued and wrestled into submission may be the one that causes a company to be defeated in the battle for survival. The factor which this paper will focus on is Absenteeism Management. The severity of the absenteeism problem for business in general is growing. In a tight market such as shipbuilding, absenteeism can be the difference that results in a company being unable to compete. Those who do not know the degree to which absenteeism affects business should pay close attention.
