Find out how your organisation's attendance management practices compare to your peers
2015 Survey Report coming soon!
Ai Group's Absenteeism & Presenteeism Survey 2015 has recently been completed with the Survey Report due in late November.
This report will help your organisation reduce unscheduled absence and improve your policies and practices through a best-practice approach.
Our Absenteeism & Presenteeism Survey Report 2014 estimates that absenteeism directly costs organisations approximately $536 per employee per absent day. Counting personal leave payments alone, the annual cost to the Australian economy is $24 billion Meanwhile, the costs of presenteeism (productivity losses as a result of workers attending when unwell) are in the vicinity of $35 billion1 – more than 73% of organisations in our survey say they are counting its cost.
In this context, it’s hard to see why attendance management is often a neglected area of business - 58% of our 2014 survey respondents recognised absenteeism as a ‘significant cost’ to their business that risked considerable competitive disadvantage, but less than half actually had a dedicated policy to manage it.
Read further key findings from our 2014 Absenteeism and Presenteeism Survey report.
The Survey Report features:
- In-depth analysis of absenteeism rates and patterns
- The costs of absenteeism to business
- The effectiveness of employer attendance management policies and practices
- Discussion and analysis of absence measurement and reporting methods
- Examination of presenteeism and health and wellbeing initiatives in the workplace
The Survey Report will assist you to:
- Compare absenteeism rates with their industry peers
- Measure and report on absence in the workplace
- Develop and improve absent management policies and procedures
- Focus on factors that will best reduce absenteeism and presenteeism and increase productivity
