Absenteeism from work is one of the problems that most affects the competitiveness of businesses..

One of the problems businesses have is placing a figure on absenteeism, as there is no reference rate at a national level, so surveys from various sources are normally used.

Once the companies have selected the measurement indicators to be used, and after the types and causes of their medical and non-medical absenteeism have been identified, measures must be established allowing them to improve their workers' health.
