A 2019 report by CIPD found the average level of employee absence is 5.9 days per year. For small businesses, even a short period of absence can result in huge implications on both customer service levels and productivity. To calculate the financial cost of this absence to your organisation, simply divide your businesses average staff salary by 365 then multiply by 5.9 to see the average cost of ill health to your business.
The top cause of short-term absence is mental ill health, followed by minor illnesses such as colds, flu, stomach upsets, headaches and migraines. Mental ill health is now the biggest cause for long-term absence (four weeks or more), along with musculoskeletal injuries such as back pain and acute medical conditions.
Furthermore, workplaces are also seeing a rising culture of ‘presenteeism’, meaning more people are coming into work when they’re unwell. Employees coming to work while sick can have a negative impact on productivity as well as their health.
In your business, you’ll probably have some form of procedure for managing sickness absence among your employees. However, instead of reacting to incidents of ill health, surely it would be more effective and cost-efficient to prevent employees from developing health problems in the first place? Businesses that take a proactive approach to their employee’s health are more likely to have valued and supported staff who are far more likely to deliver the best outcomes.
