Winter presents significant management challenges for employers as the combination of seasonal illness, adverse weather and last-minute holiday requests create an upsurge in Winter absences.
Staff absences can have a profound impact on your staffing levels, productivity, profitability and morale.
The average cost of each absence is £554 per employee, according to the CIPD. This comprises the cost of sick pay itself, organising cover through temporary staff or overtime, and a drop in productivity of those left to pick up the extra workload.
So what’s the answer? Effective absence management is essential to mitigating the impact of winter absences.
