More than 130 million days are lost to sickness absence every year in the UK

Wednesday 7th September 2016

University of Salford

 This year the University of Salford is joining forces with the International Disability Management Standards Council UK to bring you a dynamic programme that will bring together a range of key stakeholders all working to keep people happy, healthy and occupationally productive.

More than 130 million days are lost to sickness absence every year in the UK, and working age ill health has an annual cost to the economy of more than £100 billion. Unless addressed appropriately, the World Health Organisation has identified that 12 billion working days – or 50 million years of work – will be lost to depression and anxiety disorders each year between now and 2030. Hence, along with a range of government strategies to support those with ill health to return to the workplace, there is a growing focus on wellness at work, in order to improve peoples’ lives and raise the level of economic performance in industry.
