Absence Management & Wellbeing Survey Report

We are pleased to release our latest Absence Management & Wellbeing Survey results for Australian organisations.

In 2017, employee absenteeism rates increased from 9.5 days to 9.7 days per employee per annum, an increase of 0.2 day. The median was 9.3 days per annum. Employees in the private sector took on average of 9.5 absence days a year, compared to 11.5 days for public sector workers.

Overall, 73% or respondent organisations indicated that absenteeism levels increased or remained the same.

The analysis is based on the results provided by 122 organisations across Australia who collectively employ over 240,000 employees. Respondents were requested to provide data based on all unplanned absenteeism, including personal leave, workers compensation leave and unauthorised leave – paid and unpaid.

This report endeavours to inform industry about absence levels across Australia, and what measures are being introduced.

To find out more about the report, or to purchase a copy for $495 + GST please contact us and we will be in touch.
