The average level of employee absence is currently at 6.8 days per year with an average cost per employee of £673 per year (CIPD,2012). Sickness absence management has a major impact on the damaging effects on profitability and the success of a business. It is therefore essential to be pro-active in the management of absence. If you want to get your employees back to work as quickly and safely as possible, early intervention is essential. Once an employee has been off sick for more than six weeks, the problem is often compounded and the chances of returning to work at all are significantly reduced.
