Worked Example

In the last 12 months, a company of 50 staff has experienced a sick leave rate of 8.5 days per employee and has recruited 3 replacement staff due to resignations. The average staff salary is $50,000. The company runs a shift roster of 8-hour days and the average hourly wage is $25.



These figures were calculated on a reduction in absenteeism of 30%, reduction in staff turnover of 10% and a 75% staff replacement cost. All of these figures are estimated averages. For more information click here.
