Employee absence crisis – are employers doing enough?

Expert Panel Discussion in conjunction with Aon. The total cost of health per employee is typically between £2,000-£3,000 per annum or 4%- 6% of payroll. Against that backdrop, are absence policies designed to fail?  Are employers doing enough to help employees suffering from physical and mental health issues?  What can employers, advisors and occupational health specialists do to improve support and policies in this area? Our experience working with business owners and HR professionals has highlighted the following common trends threatening businesses across different sectors:

• increasing costs of absence impacts on profitability;
• more employees reporting increased stress and psychological problems;
• fitness for work v fitness to engage; and
• dealing with sensitive absence issues

Considering these issues will be our Question Time-style panel of employment law and health care specialists:
