Employers plagued by ‘absenteeism crisis’
The hiring platform Catapult says the UK is suffering from an "absenteeism crisis" in the workplace. It warned that SMEs are most affected by employee absenteeism, which includes both "genuine" and "non-genuine" absences taken off work. UK businesses are losing 6.9 days a year per employee due to the absenteeism trend, while 23% of UK firms report non-genuine absence as their top cause of short-term time off work for non-manual workers, according to research from the CIPD.
