Reward Guide - Caring issues are the main cause of employee absence

Home and family issues are the main causes for absence and lack of productivity amongst employees.

A growing number of employers are finding that caring responsibilities are affecting their employees, which in turn affects staff absence and productivity. According to research by GRID, 61% of employers found caring issues to be the main cause of short-term absence (less than 4 weeks), 49% found these issues to be the cause of mid-term absence (4 weeks to 6 months) and 43% of employers related these issues to be the cause of long-term absence (more than 6 months).

The stress that can come with providing elderly and child care can also lead to the development of mental illness or the deterioration of mental health.
