Absenteeism after World Cup matches is well known phenomenon and has historically cost British businesses millions.

So what about this year?  How has this affected you?

Gareth Southgate has been turning us on with his snazzy waistcoats and ace management style but now that it’s all over (bar the game for 3rd place) have hungover staff cost you business money in lost revenue?

Have you been tackling employee absences in a way that will get them to work?

Legal advice website Rocket Lawyer  looked into the best way to keep your staff on your team in their recent blog.

The article covers creating a tactical strategy, how to defend your position while attacking the problem head on, all the way through to making sure you don’t foul up your policies while you score goals with your staff.

If you, like the England team, have learned lots during this World Cup then you might want to put in place the steps to be better prepared for next time.  And remember:

You’ve got to hold and give
But do it at the right time
You can be slow or fast
But you must get to the line
They’ll always hit you and hurt you
Defend and attack
There’s only one way to beat them
Get round the back
