Workers take fewer days sick

4th May 2011

A study by the Engineering Employers Federation and Westfield Health has showed that workers are taking fewer days off sick.

A record 45% had no days off ill at all in 2010, as the study revealed a steady fall in sickness absence over the past three years, with the average employee taking five days off in 2010 compared with 6.7 days in 2007. The state of the economy may have played a part in the figures, but the report – drawn up after a survey of more than 450 firms - said the trend started before the recession.
