Integrated Benefits Institute Launches Productivity Modeling Tools to Help Employers Estimate the Impact of Absent Employees

New IBI Lost Productivity Calculators based on research with 800 employers

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- To enable employers to estimate the productivity impact from absent employees, the non-profit Integrated Benefits Institute has created three proprietary, on-line Lost Productivity Calculators for its members. The calculators can estimate absence-related lost-productivity costs for an entire company, a specific occupation group, or a specific group of claimants with measured lost time.

"Employers often don't know what work absence really costs their company," said Thomas Parry, PhD, IBI president. "Our calculators give employers state-of-the-art tools to estimate that cost so they can develop more effective strategies for managing absence and related health issues."


The first calculator is the IBI Company-wide Lost Productivity Calculator which models a company's overall lost productivity costs due to unscheduled absence. The second is the IBI Occupation-specific Lost Productivity Calculator which models absence-related lost-productivity costs for specific occupation groups within a company, such as salespeople, nurses or engineers. The third is the IBI Claimant Lost Productivity Calculator which models absence-related lost productivity costs for a specific group of claimants with measured lost time (e.g., paid time off, salary continuation, workers' compensation or short-term disability).

All three calculators have been developed in partnership with Sean Nicholson, PhD, associate professor, Department of Policy Analysis and Management, Cornell University, based on his peer-reviewed research with 800 employers.

"IBI's Lost Productivity Calculators provide a pragmatic way to bring peer-reviewed research tools to the market," said Dr. Nicholson.

Although the calculators are available only to IBI members, employers may request a complimentary, one-year membership.
