Costs – On average, 35 percent of payroll is linked to employee absence. This includes the cost of paying absent employees as well as indirect costs, such as lost productivity and hiring of replacement workers.

Risks – Without workforce attendance system to manage employee absence, organizations risk failing to comply with collective bargaining agreements and government regulations such as the Family Medical Leave Act and state leave laws.

Productivity – Absence is a productivity killer — on average, incidental, unplanned absences result in 19 percent of net lost productivity per day. To control the impact of absenteeism, management needs to see trends so they can control costs. Company policies need to be managed in order to minimize compliance risk and workers with attendance issues need to be identified so the workforce productivity can be improved.
