The cost of ill health Learning from US trends Obesity is estimated to account for 43% of all healthcare spending by US businesses on employees. Obese workers are more than twice as likely to have high levels of absence as other staff. The cost of obesity to an employer with 1,000 workers is $285,000 a year, with increased levels of sickness absence accounting for 30% of this. Medical costs for obese employees are 77% higher than those for workers with an average body mass index.
The cost of ill health to UK business Workplace absenteeism costs the UK economy £12 billion every year (Health & Safety Executive 2006) 18 million working days are lost due to obesity-related health problems every year in the UK (Department of Health) 10.5 million work days lost due to stress, anxiety and depression in 2005/6 (Health & Safety Executive 2006) Each case of stress-related ill health leads to an average of 30.9 working days lost UK business loses 4.9 million days a year to work related back pain (Health & Safety Executive 2005) ~ 2% of capital spent on workforce is lost to disability, absenteeism and presenteeism caused by chronic diseases and an equal amount is spent on the direct costs of healthcare (Price Waterhouse Coopers Report 2007)
