In partnership with Simplyhealth

Produced in partnership with Simplyhealth, this annual survey report sets out the findings of the CIPD’s fifteenth national survey of absence management trends, policy and practice. The survey provides useful benchmarking data for organisations on absence levels and the cost and causes of absence as well as a focus on employee well-being.

This year's report found that savvy employers put policies in place to help staff fulfil their caring responsibilities outside of work while continuing to meet the demands of their job.

"Some level of absence is inevitable, but understanding and addressing
the main causes of absence and supporting employees to make a
speedy return to work can have a significant impact on absence levels."
