Absenteeism in the Workplace
When you’re a team member down, the knock-on effects can be significant.
Based on research of over 1000 UK office workers, we're be sharing a series of guides exploring the key aspects of absenteeism – from loyalty and engagement to employee health, welfare and job satisfaction – to help you deal with the issue long-term. Our top tip guides are designed to help you build a healthier workplace, tackle the root causes of absenteeism and minimise its impact when absence takes you by surprise.
Fun facts about absenteeism:
- Our research found that UK office workers aged 35-44 are the first to bunk off, followed by 25-34 year olds and then 16-24.
- People in Wales have pulled the most sickies within the last 12 months, closely followed by East England, Northern Ireland and South East England
- Arts and Culture, followed by Legal, HR and IT and Telecoms are industries that get most annoyed when colleagues call in sick (and are glad when they've come to work so others don't have to pick up their workload).
