Online Webinar | How To Manage Sickness Absence In Your Business

Many businesses are likely to experience an increase in sickness absence due to Covid-19. This could be triggered by employees contracting the virus or by the knock-on effect of sickness absence on teams that may already be reduced in number due to cost-cutting.

As reported in the latest Health and Well-Being at Work report (published by the CIPD and Simply Health), 14% of workplaces surveyed reported that on average, their employees had more than 10 days absence over the last year. 5% of workplaces reported average absence levels of 15+ days per employee. The cumulative impact of this volume of sickness absence will be significant on any business’s productivity, bottom line and the mental health of all colleagues.
