What are you missing through employee absenteeism?

Employee absenteeism costs the British economy £14 billion a year, and costs individual  businesses on average £1,608 per employee.

As a business you may monitor and discuss  absenteeism but Personal Group can help you take the next steps to improve employee engagement.

To keep absenteeism to a minimum you need to keep your workforce engaged, and our wide range  of benefits will appeal across the board, allowing you to offer something to everyone no matter  what their age or gender.

It’s important to say thanks to people for their efforts as this can really make a difference to how  they feel about their role. Only 10% of adults say thanks to a colleague every day.

Thanking people for their hard work, and singling out what was well done, really helps engage staff with their job. Offering reward through our benefits can also aid motivation as staff feel appreciated.

Ensuring that your employees are comfortable and have a good work environment is also  important.

You are obliged to keep your staff safe at work but you should also provide suitable  working conditions as this will increase productivity.

Providing additional benefits to your  employees such as health benefits, cycle to work schemes, and gym discounts, helps reduce sick  days as it aids engagement and improves their health and wellbeing.

Looking after your staff is key to improving engagement and reducing absenteeism.
