How to manage employee absence - A Sage White Paper

The DWP’s (Department of Work and Pensions) Health and Wellbeing at Work Report found large employers reported a higher incidence of sickness absence than small and medium employers. With this said it is estimated that the cost of staff sickness to UK small businesses could be £3.4 billion with a collective loss of 63 million days lost through sickness. It is also estimated that sickness rates are 27% higher in winter.

Any reduction through better management can significantly improve productivity and profit levels. Cost reductions can come from reducing unworked time, overtime, temporary staff, and improving productivity and administration.
