WHAT IS THE REAL COST OF EMPLOYEE ABSENTEEISM ?

Work related injuries and illness, chronic diseases, absenteeism and sick employees who return to work before getting well cost U.S. employers billions of dollars each year.  An aging workforce and factors like stress, fatigue and depression all impact employers’ medical costs and employees’ productivity.

People who go to work when they’re sick (presenteeism) accounts for nearly two-thirds of the total cost of worker illness.  Productivity losses linked to absenteeism cost employers $225.8 billion dollars each year or $1,685 per employee.

Employers report: 

4 million non work-related injuries and illnesses annually

55 thousand deaths from work-related injuries and illnesses annually, compared to approximately 30,000 deaths annually from motor vehicle accidents.

Today’s workers face serious health challenges.

Fatigue:  Inadequate sleep leads to worker errors, low productivity and safety incidents which affect business profitability.  (Source: Moore-Ede, 2011; Rosekind et al. 2010; Sirois, 2007)

 Diabetes:  Medical costs for people with diabetes are TWICE as high as for people without diabetes.  In 2012 U.S. health care costa associated with diabetes was $245 billion dollars, a drastic increase from $174 billion in 2007 (Source: Diabetes Journal)

Obesity:  Full-time workers in the U.S. who are overweight or obese have other chronic health problems and miss about 450 million more days of work than healthy workers, costing more than $153 billion dollars a year in lost productivity.  (Source: 2011 Gallup-Healthways Well-being)

Stress: The number 1 workplace health issue. According to the American Psychological Assoc., chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: Heart disease, Cancer, Lung ailments, Accidents, Cirrhosis of the liver and Suicide.  Chronic stress can affect your brain, suppress your thyroid, cause blood sugar imbalances, decrease bone density and muscle tissue, raise blood pressure, reduce your immunity and ability to heal, and increase fat.
