Absenteeism Rate


The frequency and extent to which employees are absent from work, excluding pre-approved leave like vacations. High absenteeism can indicate employee dissatisfaction, burnout, health issues, or a problematic work environment. Consistently monitoring this metric ensures that employee well-being is prioritized, and productivity is maintained.


(Number of Unplanned Absent Days / Total Number of Working Days) x 100


If employees took a total of 50 unplanned absent days over 1000 working days, the absenteeism rate would be 5%.
