Research shows that good health is good for business and better workplaces have better financial results. Every year over 170 million days are lost to sickness absence. The Government’s Black Review of the health of the working age population reported the cost to the economy is estimated to be £100bn each year. Research shows that the longer people are off sick, the less likely they are to make a successful return to work and after six months absence from work there is only a 50 per cent chance of someone making a successful return to their job.
