Did you know that sickness and absenteeism costs the UK economy £29bn (approx. $45bn) every single year, and it costs the US economy $576bn in the same time period?

We’ve looked at ways that both countries – and all other countries around the world – can reduce the amount of unplanned absences that members of staff have.
