Because of competitive pressures, companies can no longer afford to carry unnecessary absence that they may have tolerated in the past. Therefore, many companies are focusing on the issue of eliminating, or at least reducing, unnecessary levels of absence.
While the majority of absences are involuntary, various studies report that voluntary absenteeism could account
for between 20- 40% of all absenteeism.
Absenteeism leads to:
- Reduced employee productivity
- Reduced employee morale, and
- Increased overhead costs
Absence control can often be an important step in the process of reducing business costs.
