What Does Absenteeism Cost Your Organization?
The costs associated with employee absenteeism, partial-shift absences, and misuse of organization-specific and federal leave policies are substantial. With the increased risk of employment disputes, lost productivity, drain on HR resources, and compliance concerns — the cost of inadequate attendance management can be staggering.
From the direct financial costs to the impact on productivity and overall performance, organizations without a centralized system for tracking employee attendance stand to lose.
Data from Kaiser Permanente reveals that employee absences, and the resultant loss in productivity, costs the average U.S. business roughly $1,685 per employee annually, an estimated 225.8 billion lost each year– about 60% of the total cost of worker illness.
Drastically Reduce the HR Costs Associated with Employee Attendance
For example, take a 500 person facility. Generally, there are 8% who have attendance infractions each day, for a total of 1200 per month.
Normally, these infractions would require data entry, point tracking, employee interactions, and more.
With CMS, these overhead costs are all but eliminated. This facility would save nearly $90K a year by utilizing an attendance hotline service.
