The cost of sickness & absenteeism.

Fraudulent absenteeism can cause all kinds of damage to the company you have worked hard to build. Not only does it affect the productivity of a business, it also has a serious impact on team cohesion. Motivating your team to work hard will only be made more difficult if some members of the team refuse to pull their weight. This has financial implications too. Employee sickness-related absences and presenteeism costs the UK economy £77.5 billion a year, according to the Vitality Workplace Wellness Survey. In total, 118.6 million working days were lost because of sickness or injury in the UK in 2020 – which equates to 3.6 days lost per worker. Your organisation doesn't have to fight these numbers single-handedly. This is the link to The Office for National Statistics with statistics of sickness in the workplace including days lost through absence per year to sickness absence rates by employment classification.
