SHL, the provider of psychometric assessment and development solutions, has unveiled an HR Health Check initiative for the public sector.
It is being implemented to help government departments, local councils and the emergency services to understand how they can best attract the best talent, engage their staff and provide top-level people management.
HR Health Check is a free recruitment process review providing access to HR analysts and occupational psychologists.
Sean Howard, SHL's new director of dependability, said: "One of the biggest challenges facing the public sector is absenteeism which is twice the level experienced by the private sector.
"Putting tools in place that can help identify potential employees who will have good attendance records and will be effective and positive team members is critical in overcoming this."
He added that assessing dependability can be vital in pinpointing candidates who will work well in customer-focused roles or be "less accident prone in safety critical environments".
