The purpose of this essay is to identify the costs of illness in different organizations, and compare the calculated result with the actual result in their annual reports.
We collected information thru interviews with the personnel manager in the selected organizations, and used the annual reports to add necessary information.
When we applied our model, we found that the selected organizations, in some cases, have a cost of illnes which is up to seven times higher than shown in their annual reports. It’s, in general, the costs that aren’t related to the salary (additional costs), which are much higher than shown.
The absence of a model that calculates the costs of illnes can result in wrongful decisions. If a model would be applied in an organization, it should increase the awearness of the actual costs of illnes, which can lead to better decisions througout the whole organization.
