Benefits of taking part in the Survey including a FREE REPORT!

In our 2012 Survey the vast majority of respondents felt they could improve their attendance management, with only 4.7% rating their performance highly – a surprisingly low result.

The 2014 Survey will collect information on absenteeism levels and their costs, absence patterns and ‘presenteeism’, as well as employer attendance management practices and their effectiveness.

The results will be included in our Survey Report which will provide you and your organisation with:

  • information upon which to benchmark absence management practices;
  • tips on best practice; and
  • vital data and information to assist with policy development and planning.

And, for completing the Survey you will receive a FREE copy of the Survey Report!

The Survey Report will be made available to members of Ai Group for $209 and to non-members for $249 so by contributing you save over $200!

What is required to complete the Survey?

For information about completing the survey please see our Survey Guidelines.

The Survey Guidelines also contain definitions of key terms and information relating to how to calculate your absenteeism rate for the purposes of the Survey.

We also have an Absenteeism and Costs Calculator that you can use to calculate the absenteeism rate for your organisation and the costs (if you measure this). The calculator is also available to download at the relevant questions.

How long will the survey take to complete?

With everything required at hand the Survey should take you approximately 25-40 minutes and provide you with invaluable information. 

To assist you in completing the survey a unique password and survey link is created when you begin. This will enable you to save your responses and return to the Survey whenever you wish to continue with or complete it.

Please make sure that you follow the prompts and email yourself your unique password and link when beginning the Survey.

PLEASE NOTE: When you first enter the Survey the second window states that this is an anonymous survey. The Survey is not anonymous as we need to collect your details so that we can send you your free Survey Report.

Further assistance

You may also find it useful to view our Survey Guidelines which contain important information about the Survey including definitions of key terms and how to calculate your absenteeism rate for the purposes of the Survey. These can also be accessed once you start the 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.
