Over half of employees feel under pressure to return to work

Half (51%) of UK workers claim their workplaces are affected by a culture of negative judgement around sickness absence, a survey shows. The study of 1,123 workers found 54% of workers believe they are put under pressure to return to work before they have fully recovered from illness or injury. It warned this could contribute to greater levels of presenteeism – turning up for work when unwell. Fear of a negative impact on job prospects is the biggest reason workers feel under pressure to return, cited by 50% of respondents, followed by worries about letting colleagues down (46%) and worries over workload and deadlines (35%).
