According to the Sickness Absence Survey 2016*, the mean sick pay cost per company in 2015 was £42,950.
To use the manufacturing sector as a prime example, for the approximate 2.7 million manufacturing sector employees who work in the UK, this indicates a total sick pay cost for the sector of approximately £0.6 billion, which is only a proportion of the direct costs which might be incurred.
The question is, can you afford not to have an absence management system in place?
Why Absence Management is important
Good Absence Management is a positive tool in any business and has been shown to reduce the cost to employers and negative impact on fellow employees. Its effectiveness allows companies to improve employee satisfaction and contentment, which can lead to an increase in productivity.
