BA challenges workers to help cut £60m absence billOn 30 Mar 2004 in Personnel Today Absence at British Airways (BA) is costing the company almost £60m a year,according to its chief executive, Rod Eddington. In his column in the latest company newsletter, Eddington challenges staffto tackle absenteeism, which is running at 16.7 days per employee – more thantwice the national average. He said that with a current UK workforce of 37,500, that adds up to 626,250lost days a year. When the cost of this is worked out, it comes in at £58.5m. “These are dreadful statistics,” he said. The company and unionsare now investigating the causes and a solution. “Prolonged absence is not confined to any one department – we’relooking at attendance right across the airline,” he said. “It doesn’t need a mathematics professor to tell you that if the averageis 16.7 days across BA, for some staff – and some departments – that figurewill be significantly higher.” Eddington also outlined his views on work. “If you are healthy and paidto do a job, it is your duty to come in and do it.” A programme is underway at the airline to cut employee costs by £300m.
