Absence Management

Sickness absence is defined as any absence from work attributed to illness or injury. It is now well recognised that sickness absence gives rise to significant costs for all organisations each year with the CIPD annual survey (2016) announcing average sickness absence costs per employee of approximately £522 per year or 6.3 working days lost.

At Choose Occupational Health we recognise that early support and intervention can help to reduce the length of absence and facilitate an early return to work, wherever possible.
