How does your absence rate compare?

Do you know how the level of sickness absence in your company compares to the wider manufacturing industry? Our annual Absence Benchmark can give you the answer!

This report provides a simple guide to the latest trends in absence in the UK manufacturing sector. We examine both the absence rate and the average number of days lost per employee – across all employees, and manual and non-manual employees separately. Additionally, there is national and regional analysis, plus breakdowns by size of company and manufacturing sub-sector.

Members can download a free copy of this report by logging in and going to “My Account”. Non-members can purchase a copy for £50 + VAT by emailing the Information & Research team: [email protected]

The 2018 figures are based on responses received from 192 manufacturing organisations which employ a total of 37,217 employees, and covers the period from 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2018.
