The hidden cost of unwell employees

What do unwell employees really cost your business?

The backbone of any successful organisation is its people. So, when your employees are unwell, it can have a real impact on your business’s performance.


And it’s not just absent employees costing you through sick pay. It’s the unwell employees at work too – and all the knock-on effects.

Every business’ needs are different.

Do you know the knock-on effects of unwell employees for your business?

So, whether you’re having to:

  • arrange cover for absent staff
  • re-distribute and manage heavy workloads because there’s no cover
  • look for ways to fix mistakes or missed deadlines that over-stressed or unwell and less productive employees have made at work
  • replace talented but overworked staff who have left as a result of low morale

…it’s most likely costing your business a significant amount of valuable time and resource.
