This might shock you, but in the UK there were 30 million working days lost to work-related ill health between 2021 and 2022.
The primary cause?
And the cost of new cases of ill health in the workforce was £11.2 billion in 2019-2020. That’s a figure that is likely to have risen, too.
What might that mean for your business?
It’s going to impact productivity, turnover, and it could have a negative effect on the rest of your workforce, too.
Fortunately, as an employer there are things you can do to have a positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of your people and also your absence management process. Of course, it will take a little work on your part, but the outcome will certainly be worth it if you can decrease the amount of unplanned absence in the business.
That’s where The Absolute Works can help.
Our team spend a lot of time working with businesses to help improve the mental health and wellbeing of their people and devise and embed an absence management process. In turn, this can help to reduce absence and create a more productive, motivated, and engaged workforce.
