What are the effects of employee sickness on employers?
Almost 150 million working days were lost because of sickness or injury last year, with absence having a negative costly impact on employers. The productivity, workplace environment and efficiency of work teams were also greatly affected.
Surveys have revealed that employees who stay off work on sick leave for four weeks or more, were unlikely to return to work. Employers need to address sickness issues before they worsen, and ultimately impact the business.
