Dealing with Sickness Absence
Each year, 190 million working days are lost due to sickness absence in the UK. Missing out on work due to sickness can be costly for organisations, leading to a loss in productivity and profits. It can also result in workplace disruption and negativity from colleagues who might be left with covering extra work. All organisations must be committed to promoting the health, safety and welfare of their employees, and a comprehensive sickness absence management policy can help organisations to achieve this. It is important to find a balance between encouraging employees to maximise their attendance and performance at work whilst recognising that there will be occasions when this is not possible due to absence caused by sickness.
