dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study is mainly to identify causes of labor absenteeism in the Artistic Printing Enterprise and to look in to their impact on the production and productivity of the organization under study thereby to suggest suitable measures for improving the conditions of labor absenteeism to an acceptable level. The research is conducted using the descriptive research method. The data required for the research is obtained from both primary and secondary data collection methods. The primary data collection methods were survey through questionnaire and interview. Analysis and interpretation of the data through the aforementioned methods give rise to the following results. As per data analyzed, the overall rate of labor absenteeism for all departments for the two years of investigation (covering the period from March 2003 up to the month of April 2005) was 5.02% i.e. 13.2%+4.8%+2.0%+2.6%+2.5%=25.1 % divided by 5 =5.02% Since the rate of labor absenteeism in the production department is as high as 13.2% on an average for the two years of investigation which is very serious management should take measures to lower it to acceptable level. The 5.02% average rate of labor absenteeism for the whole organization is still out of the tolerable limit as compared to the printing industry of the 1.8% rate. Hence, here also intervention is required to curb the problem. Regarding the impact of labor absenteeism on production and productivity the following hypothetical relationship has been observed. The higher the rate of absenteeism the lower the production of books as clearly observed in the computation. The findings revealed that the average rate of absenteeism in the production department is so serious that management should take measures to minimize to the level acceptable. en_US
