Labour providers feel the financial cost of ill-health at work through:
- The direct cost of Statutory Sick Pay
- The time and resource taken to backfill absent workers – and the lost revenue when unable to backfill
- The potential damage to client relationships where absence impacts upon productivity
Just one person claiming SSP will cost the labour provider the margin generated by three or more other workers dependent upon margins and so can have a significant impact on profitability.
A fair procedure which does not penalise workers for genuine illness, but which seeks to address the causes of absenteeism and encourage workers to improve their attendance will result in more engaged workers leading to better performance, improved retention and therefore decreased costs.
Join us to learn how to ensure that absence is dealt with consistently and fairly, and workers receive the SSP they are entitled to.
