Ill health at work is a huge issue for both companies and employees. This section provides links to chronic condition guides and the NHS Choices website.
Ill health at work can be a huge problem for both companies and employees. For example in 2009/10 1.3 million people suffered from work related ill health and 23.4 million days were lost by British industry due to work-related ill health. The impact on a business of a critical member of staff being absent due to a long term condition can be devastating for organisations.
Everyone suffers if employees are needlessly absent from work due to ill health, the country, the employer and the employee, but many organisations find health a difficult area to manage.
