Absenteeism & Presenteeism Survey

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

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.

Ai Group's Absenteeism & Presenteeism Survey Report 2014 will help your organisation reduce unscheduled absence and improve your policies and practices through a best-practice approach.
