Absence management

Hi all,


Our organisation currently uses the Bradford Factor process to assist managing absence levels and we are looking to change this. Does anyone out there use a different process and if so are you finding any benefits from it and how does it work please?


Thanks in advance

  • Hi Lou

    Great post some organisations use lost time rates and you can read more about different ways of measuring absence here.


    The Bradford Factor still seems to be popular in some organisations, but anecdotally other learners have told me their organisations no longer use this.

    Hope the attached link is of use!

    Kind regards
