How much does sickness absence cost your organisation?
This has always been a difficult question to answer, however increasingly there is good quantitative research data available that allows reasonable estimates to be made. Research conducted by a leading disability insurer found that sickness absence could cost UK businesses as much as 16% of payroll. However, the majority of employers do not measure or analyse their staff absences and the related costs to their business.
Cost data can be a powerful way of grabbing the attention of senior managers in your organisation.
