Absenteeism

Is someone in the team repeatedly absent?
Do they seem reluctant to come to work?
Is it having a knock on effect with the rest of the team and the business as a whole?

Poor productivity and days off sick are costing us a staggering amount of money. According to the survey, sickness-related absences and presenteeism are costing the UK economy £77.5 billion a year. Figures taken from the 2017 Britain’s Healthiest Workplace survey has found that employees lose an average of 30.4 working days a year due to sickness, or illness-related underperformance.While it might be a free day off from work for the employee, absences carry hidden costs that can affect a company’s productivity and revenue.
