Flexible working reduces absenteeism claims an Industrial
The report, called Managing Attendance, shows that
employee absence rates fell from around eight days per employee per year to six
and a half days over the last 18 months.
Fifty five per cent of HR professionals surveyed in the
research claim that more flexible working hours have significantly contributed
to this reduction. Just under half believe flexible annual leave is important
in reducing absence, and 40 per cent are convinced that home working helps.
