While well aware of the problem of absenteeism, many managers do not have a clear understanding of the full costs of employee absence. It is estimated that 131 million days are lost due to sickness in the UK alone (National Office statistics 2014) at a cost to companies of approximately £14 billion every year.

Cost implications to employers for absenteeism include:

  • Compensating employees who are absent
  • Expense to fill the gaps with overtime
  • Hiring contract workers and associated training costs
  • Cost of managers time and loss of productivity


In addition to these costs it is estimated that these costs double if you take into account Presenteeism; these are the costs associated with employees who physically present at work, due to ill health and poor wellbeing are unable to perform productively for the organisation. Presenteeism can include physical and psychological health.

  • Problems for employers for presenteeism include:
  • Loss of productivity
  • Low morale of management and staff having to compensate
  • Relationship strain

Organisational Wellbeing: managing stress in the workplace
Successful employers know that organisations perform better when their staff are healthy, motivated and focused.

Research consistently shows that when employees feel their work is meaningful and they are valued and supported, they tend to have higher wellbeing levels, be more committed to the organisation’s goals and, importantly, they take less sick days and perform better.

This strong relationship between levels of staff wellbeing and motivation and business performance is often called ‘employee engagement’.
