CIPD/Simplyhealth Absence Management Survey 2013

For the fourth year, Simplyhealth has partnered with the Chartered Institute of Professional Development to launch the Absence Management Survey.

Now in its fourteenth year, the national survey analyses the responses from 618 organisations across the UK on absence management trends, policy and practice. This year the results show a rise in absence levels by almost a day per employee and a continuing trend of workplace presenteeism. Positive approaches to flexible working are also on the increase with more organisations offering leave for family circumstances, such as dependent or carer leave, and more are making changes to working patterns or the environment to help manage long term absence.
