With ill-health costing the UK economy more than £100 billion a year in benefits and health expenditure, foregone taxes and lost productivity, reducing absence in the workplace is a top priority for employers.

According to Dame Carol Black, author of ‘Working for a Healthier Tomorrow’,’ the £100 billion figure equates the annual economic cost of UK sickness absence at more than the entire NHS budget.

The impact on your business

Effects on businesses of employees being absent include:

  • Reduced overall productivity
  • Increased work and stress for colleagues
  • Possible loss of reputation among key stakeholders
  • Unnecessary and costly recruitment
  • Greater risk of claims and the cost of litigation

Preventing high absenteeism within your organisation brings high morale, a happy and healthy workforce and positive commercial benefit.

We support you to proactively assess and effectively manage absences caused through sickness or injury – as well as working with you to prevent them in the future.

What we do

We aim to reduce the number of days lost through ill-health within your business or organisation by implementing an effective absence management programme and ensuring your organisation is fully compliant with all current legislation.

Dependent on the needs of your company, this could include:

  • measuring and monitoring the reason for the absence – types, frequency and trends
  • working with line managers to help them manage staff on long term sickness leave
  • arranging specialist absence management medical assessments 
  • setting up health promotion and wellbeing activities to improve the health and motivation of employees – and to help prevent sickness in the first place

We offer medical assessments for long term sickness, ill-health retirement, rehabilitation or redeployment.

These medicals are carried out by our highly qualified and experienced team of occupational health advisors/nurses, screening technicians and physicians.
