Sickness absence management
The management of sickness absence is an organisational issue. HSUK can, however, assist by advising on sickness absence concerns in terms of departments and individuals in support of the organisation’s sickness absence policy.
According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development, the average cost of sickness absence is currently running at just under £700 per employee and the average level of absence climbing to 8.4 days per employee per year.
Assuming an average per annum sickness absence level of 10% this could be costing you:
500 employees = £35,000 per annum
1000 employees = £70,000 per annum
5000 employees = £350,000 per annum
Is sickness absence something you can afford to ignore ?
