Absenteeism is the failure to show up for work. It’s difficult for work to get done if employees don’t show up. Studies have shown that unscheduled absences cost companies around $660 per employee per year.
Although absenteeism can’t be totally eliminated, excessive levels have a direct and immediate impact on the organization’s functioning.
