Abstract

This report, though practical in its orientation, has been written on the basis of data collected as part of a significant research study. IES carried out an evaluation of workplace health in the NHS in 1995 which collected data from employees in 14 NHS Trusts. Subsequent reanalysis of the data, coupled with a comprehensive review of the academic literature on sickness absence, has resulted in a series of findings about the common causes of sickness absence which lead, in turn, onto discussion about the management strategies most likely to reduce it. Statistical evidence and bibliographic references are confined to appendices in the interests of clarity and brevity.
