Reduce sick days with the right health and wellbeing solution

It can be costly when staff or their family get sick. An absent employee typically costs
a Kiwi business $600 to $1,000 a year2.

However, health insurance for the same employee could cost your business just over $13 a week1.
Looking after your people’s health just makes financial sense.

The hidden costs of presenteeism

Not everyone lies in bed when they’re unwell. 46% of Kiwis will turn up to work even when they’re sick2. And
we all know we don’t perform at our best when we’re unwell. It’s estimated people take three times as many of
these ‘presentee’ days as absentee - and this could be having a hidden impact on your productivity.

People with employer-funded health insurance seek out treatment earlier and take less sick days overall3.
And when 26% of sick days are used to care for family members4, extending your work scheme to
include family too has obvious benefits.

We've seen a notable impact on our sick leave, in one year we achieved a 30 percent reduction in the average number of days taken off. Sharna Heinjus, General Manager , Kimberly Clark Read the success story
