Actuarial Post - Research reveals that stress is the main reason for absence

According to research from Group Risk Development (GRiD) stress, and stress-inducing situations, are the main causes of short-term absence (i.e. up to 26 weeks)

 Home and family issues account for one in five short-term absences; dealing with childcare issues accounts for nearly as many absences at 17 per cent; and dealing with eldercare issues accounts for one in ten absences.

 Whereas acute medical conditions (such as heart attack/cancer) and musculoskeletal conditions both account for 15 per cent of short-term absence, stress and stress-inducing situations compound as the main reason why employees are unable to go to work.

 The research asked 500 HRs the key reasons for short-term absence within their organisations.
