149.3 million working days were lost in the UK due to sickness or injury in 2021, costing over £100bn annually.

Statistics also show that, on average, absence can cost a business £656 each year, per employee. Supporting your staff and effectively managing sickness and the return-to-work process, could help to reduce sickness absences in your workplace.

These statistics related to private businesses, but it is equally a concern for charities, especially those with small staff and volunteer teams.

Session content

Looking at managing sickness absence successfully, this session will cover:

  • Different types of absences
  • Supporting your staff at work to reduce absences
  • How to support staff during absence
  • Long COVID
  • Implementing and maintaining a successful return to work

You will have the opportunity to ask Acas advisers live questions during this webinar.
