Absence and Performance

According to PwC the annual cost of sickness absence in the United Kingdom has risen to 29 billion with British workers taking four times as many sick days as their global counterparts.

We know and understand the disruption absence causes but we also know the importance of having the right practices in place to deal with both sickness, other absences and performance.
