The Cost of Staff Absence

The Cost of Staff Absence

The overall cost of staff absence to the Economy in 2011 was £16.8 bn* Surveys of senior Human Resources staff suggested that about 15 % of the days workers took off in 2009 were not genuine, suggesting that Britons took 27 million "sickies" between them, costing £2.5bn. It is estimated that 80% of these figures involve fraudulent long term absence. Larger employers tend to have higher levels of absenteeism than smaller ones. There is a higher level of absenteeism in the public sector - workers averaged 8.3 days off sick compared with 5.8 days in the private sector
