According to the Workplace Savings and Benefits website today, employee sick days cost companies £29billion per year.
“Sickness absence is costing UK businesses almost £29billion a year, as workers take more than four times as many days off work due to sickness than their global counterparts, research has revealed.
On average, UK workers miss 9.1 days of work due to sickness, nearly double the amount that workers in the US take at 4.9 days of sickness per year, four times more than their counterparts in Asia Pacific (2.2 days) and still higher than Western Europe (7.3 days), according to findings from PwC.
Sickness accounts for around 90% of UK companies’ absence bill, which also covers compassionate leave and industrial action.”
