  1. CIPD
    Hi Bernie – the CIPD is a good sources for this type of information. My best recollection is that absence costs roughly £650 per head at the moment – but if you take a look at the CIPD website you will get the latest and more comprehensive data.

  2. Absence
    The CIPD do a sickness absence survey (annually?) that provide key statistics/top reasons.

    Return to work interviews can be very effective. If you would like more info on absence management email me at [email protected] as I have lots of experience in this area.
