Absenteeism & Presenteeism Survey

Find out how your organisation's attendance management practices compare to your peers

Our Absenteeism & Presenteeism Survey Report 2012 estimated the direct annual cost of absenteeism to the Australian economy at $24 billion. Meanwhile, the costs of presenteeism - productivity losses as a result of workers attending when unwell - were in the vicinity of $35 billion1 in the same year.

In this context, it’s hard to see why attendance management is often a neglected area of business - 57% of our 2012 survey respondents recognised absenteeism as a ‘significant cost’ to their business that risked considerable competitive disadvantage.
