Industry News: Absenteeism

 

A large survey published by the Australian Industry Group (AIG) in 2015 estimated that absenteeism directly costs organisations $578 per employee per day of absence. In direct costs alone, the loss to the economy is said to be in excess of$44 billion per annum. It’s a staggering amount. On average, Australian employees are taking around ten sick days per year. In the UK, the figure stands at about nine days per year, while in the US it stands at approximately five unscheduled days annually per employee.
