      SHRM Poll: Managing Employee Absences
    • Key Findings
      2
      • Do organizations track employee absences? A majority of organizations (79%) currently have a program in place that tracks workplace absences.
      • How do organizations categorize employee absences in the workplace? Of the organizations that track employee absences, almost all (87%) separate absences by unplanned leave (e.g., sick days, FMLA leave), planned absences (e.g., vacations, holidays, FMLA leave) and/or extended leave (e.g., short-term disability, FMLA leave, workers’ compensation leave).
      • What proportion of organizations track the indirect costs, such as overtime and the need for temporary workers, caused by employee absences? More than one-half of organizations do not track the indirect costs from employees’ unplanned (61%) or extended (53%) absences.
      • Is senior management concerned about the indirect costs of unplanned and extended employee absences? More than one-half of respondents reported that senior management was moderately concerned with costs related to unplanned (57%) and extended (53%) absences, whereas a much smaller percentage indicated that senior management was very concerned about indirect costs of extended (18%) and unplanned (13%) absences.
    •  Does your organization currently have a program that tracks employee absences in the workplace?

      Note: n = 302. Respondents who answered “not sure” were excluded from this analysis.
    •  Does your absence program separate employee absences by unplanned absences (e.g., sick days, FMLA leave), planned absences (e.g., vacations, holidays, FMLA leave) and/or extended absences (e.g., short-term disability, FMLA leave, workers’ comp leave)?
      4
      Note: n = 229. Respondents who answered “not sure” were excluded from this analysis. Total does not equal 100% due to rounding.
    • Does your organization track the indirect costs (e.g., temporary workers, overtime, business disruption, lags in product delivery, customer satisfaction) of unplanned absences and extended absences?
      5
      Note: n = 226. Respondents who answered “not sure” were excluded from this analysis.
    • Generally speaking, how concerned is senior management at your organization about the indirect costs of unplanned absences and extended absences?
      6
      Note: n = 277. Respondents who answered “not sure” were excluded from this analysis.
    • How regularly do applicable staff (e.g., line managers, HR) at your organization receive training and/or updates on the latest legal and administrative developments in the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) or other leave laws?
