This is an easy to use calculator that can help to measure potential savings associated with implementing a successful workplace health program by measuring absenteeism and staff turnover in the workplace. 

This calculator can be used in two ways: 
  • as a business case to demonstrate potential savings your business could expect from a successful workplace program; or 
  • to track progress of a workplace program that you have implemented or are currently implementing.

An example

In the last 12 months, a company of 50 staff has experienced a sick leave rate of 8.5 days per employee and has recruited 3 replacement staff due to resignations. The average staff salary is $50,000. The company runs a shift roster of 8-hour days and the average hourly wage is $25. 

These figures were calculated on a reduction in absenteeism of 30%, reduction in staff turnover of 10% and a 75% staff replacement cost. All of these figures are estimated averages. More information on the development of the calculator is available here.
