Reduce The Risk

The Cost Of Illness For The Employer The Office for National Statistics revealed the total number of days lost to sickness absence increased by 7% between 2017 and 2018 with 141.4 million sick days taken, a figure which is expected to rise.

The most common reasons for sickness absence in 2018 were minor illnesses such as coughs and colds, which are commonly caused by bacteria and viruses.Assuming that employees work 7.5 hours each day on average, taking the average UK salary of £27,600.00 and each employee being responsible for 4.3 sick days per annum, workforces of 49 employees with the average sickness absence rate of 2.2% of working hours per year would cost the employer £26,972.00 based on the average hourly rate of £14.38 and this is best case scenario. If you have senior staff members on higher salaries, the cost is sure to increase.
