Statistics show UK businesses lose up to £18bn each year due to absenteeism caused by sickness.
According to the Office for National Statistics around 131 million days were lost through absences due to sickness or injury in 2011.
Labour Force Survey data shows how this is spread across businesses of different sizes:
To put these figures in perspective:
If your employees work 37.5 hours per week on average for 52 weeks, and you have 500 employees, you are losing 22,425 hours a year when your employees are off sick (not including holiday entitlement). Think how much work could be completed in this time!
At Santia we know from experience how managing your workforce health and wellbeing can lead to a more productive working environment and how this can help you reduce both direct and indirect costs.
To help businesses of all sizes we have put together a ‘Choices for Wellbeing’ calendar that provides monthly advice to your employees and encourages them to look after their own health and wellbeing.
