The article reports on the decision of Eurotunnel, the operator of England's Channel Tunnel, to change its approach to sickness absence. The operator plans to focus on performance, rather than on the reasons behind absence. Eurotunnel's managers are encouraged to alter staff's job roles, for example, by restricting certain duties or by changing shift patterns, where this would help attendance and performance.
