Your company health report

Your report includes a detailed analysis of employee productivity, sickness absence, company health risks, key person risks and pregnancy, alongside financial impact and opportunity.

We’ve identified health risks, with a potential financial risk of £ and a financial opportunity of £, if improvements in employee health are made. Here are the details.

Productivity

There is a growing body of evidence supporting the link between greater wellbeing at work (including physical and mental health) with increased productivity. A healthy workforce is a more productive workforce, and a more productive workforce has a positive impact on a company’s revenue.

How was this calculated?

This report is an estimation based on a mixture of data sources, assumptions and averages. We would recommend creating a more accurate analysis before taking any action based on this report. Our workings and data sources are explained below:

(A) Revenue per employee hour = (Your company revenue/number of employees)/UK average working hours per employee.
(B) To attain your industry average revenue per employee hour we use your SIC code from Companies House and match that to the ONS (Office for National Statistics) database.
(C) We then use (A) and (B) to calculate the % above or below average.
(D)The 5% or 10% improvement in productivity is indicative only, rather than predictive at this stage.

The effect of poor health on employee productivity

Health and productivity

% of employees affected

Low physical activity is associated with poor overall health and musculoskeletal problems

Around 39% of adults in the UK are failing to meet Government recommendations for physical activity. Low physical activity is associated with poor overall health and musculoskeletal problems, which reduces workplace performance. Lost productive time due to missed workdays or reduced productivity while at work due to poor health,  results in a substantial cost to employers.

Poor mental health can significantly contribute to reduced workplace performance

A staggering 84% of employees have experienced physical, psychological, or behavioural symptoms of poor mental health where work was a contributing factor. Poor mental health can contribute to poor work performance and low productivity.

84%

Poor diet is associated with low energy and concentration levels

Only 26% of adults in the UK are consuming the national recommendations of at least 5 portions of fruit and veg a day. Improvements in diet can help to increase energy and concentration in employees, aiding higher productivity.

How we can help

LiveSmart Health Plans review an employee’s current health and provide advice and support to help them make long-lasting improvements to their overall health. By making changes to diet, exercise and sleep, employees will see improvements in their performance and productivity.

Sickness absence

Sickness absence costs the British economy an estimated £18 billion in lost productivity (Personnel Today), with the number of days lost to sickness per worker on average being 4.1 days. (ONS: Sickness absence in the labour market: 2017). Better employee health could further reduce sickness absence and in doing so, increase productivity and revenue.

The increasing financial impact of sick days per employee


How did you calculate this?

This report is an estimation based on a mixture of data sources, assumptions and averages. We would recommend creating a more accurate analysis before taking any action based on this report. Our workings and data sources are explained:

1. Your employee sickness absence cost per day = average employee salary per day + lost revenue per day

2. Average employee salary per day = hourly rate for industry * 7.5

3. Lost revenue per day = revenue per employee hour * 7.5 

4. To attain your average number of sick days we use your Companies House SIC Code to look this up on the ONS (Office for National Statistics) website

5. The increase or decrease in days is an indication as to what could happen and the subsequent costs or savings you could make.  

Reasons for sickness absence at work

Sickness and absence

% of employees affected

Minor illness (coughs and colds)

The main reason for sickness absence in 2017 was due to minor illnesses (mainly common colds and coughs) which accounted for 26.1% of total work days lost. A stronger immune system, gained through a healthy lifestyle (including nutrition, physical activity and sleep) can help prevent coughs, colds and flu, reducing the risk of revenue and productivity loss due to sickness absence.

Source: ONS: Sickness absence in the labour market: 2017

26.1%

Mental health (stress, anxiety, depression)

Mental health conditions (including stress, anxiety and depression) along with other health conditions (such as time off for diabetes, infections) were among the most common cause of sick days taken, accounting for 10.9% of days taken in 2017.

Source: ONS: Sickness absence in the labour market: 2017

10.9%

Musculoskeletal problems

Musculoskeletal (MSK) problems accounted for 21.5% (28.2 million days) of sick days taken in 2017, the second most common reason for sickness absence. MSK can be caused by physical inactivity. Increases in physical activity can reduce the risk or improve the symptom of MSK issues, subsequently reducing the number of MSK related sick days.

How was this calculated?

This report is an estimation based on a mixture of data sources, assumptions and averages. We would recommend creating a more accurate analysis before taking any action based on this report. Our workings and data sources are explained:

To calculate health risks we use the LiveSmart employee health database to give us population averages. We then use seniority level as a proxy for age to calculate risk per age group. The age groups are as follows:
Director = 50+
Senior Manager 35-50
Employee: 18-35
To get a completely accurate analysis for your company we would need to run health assessments for all of your employees.

How was this calculated?

This report is an estimation based on a mixture of data sources, assumptions and averages. We would recommend creating a more accurate analysis before taking any action based on this report.
We have used Office for National Statistics data on long term sickness absence by age to calculate the number of employees that could be away from work. We have calculated the financial risk in terms of revenue loss per employee.
Director financial risk = 3 x employee revenue per year
Senior Manager financial risk = 2 x employee yearly revenue
Employee revenue is calculated in the productivity section
