To give you some context, I work in a small business - circa 30 people and in the last 12 months we have spent over £15,000 on sickness. This is because we don't invoke SSP (perhaps this is an issue?).
Sickness is the biggest issue in this business, at least one person a week (currently 5 people are off, hence my need to seek advice) but I actually feel like the CEO and Founder are disinterested by this. I keep trying to force the issue, I've shown them a cost breakdown of how much each employee has cost us in sickness, but it doesn't seem to be working.
Has anyone else had experience in their work place with sickness? Has anyone got any advice on how best to tackle this?
It's very demotivating for the people who are here, day in day out.
