"Presenteeism" occurs when an employee is physically at work, but due to symptoms of a minor illness, is unfocused and unproductive. When workers are not feeling their best, productivity often plummets, costing businesses valuable time and money.
- Arthritis, headaches, and back problems cost nearly $47 billion in productivity per year.
- Presenteeism costs business approximately $150 billion per year, or an estimated $2,000 per employee.
- Researchers at Cornell University Institute for Health and Productivity Studies (IHPS) published a study that stated, "...on the job productivity losses from presenteeism are possibly as high as 60 percent of the total cost of worker illness -- exceeding the cost of absenteeism and medical and disability benefits."
