Absence Cost Calculator

The absence of sick or injured employees generates direct and indirect costs for your company. Our absence cost calculator will calculate the total cost and how much you could save with Helsana's occupational health management.

According to the Swiss Federal Statistical Office, workers take an average of over six days of sick leave every year, which puts the absence rate at around 3%.

Alongside direct costs like payroll costs, these absences also generate less visible, indirect costs. These costs can include overtime for employees who are still at work, reduced quality, the loss of knowledge and higher insurance costs.

The average cost of absences due to sickness and injury is equivalent to around 9% of the total payroll. Indirect costs can be two to three times higher than direct costs.

The absence cost calculator calculates the average cost of absences in your company – and the potential savings.
