Absentee rate is the number or percentage of days off taken by employees that are not allotted in vacation days or holidays. An increase in absences can occur for many reasons – disengagement, illness, family emergencies, or even environmental disruption like inclement weather.
A 2016 Business Journal studying employee absenteeism found that unplanned absences cause the American service sector loses 2.3% of all scheduled labor hours every year. These unplanned absences are costly, one company reported losing around $700 per employee annually. The studies show that costs of employee absences continue to rise even when the rate of absences decreased.
