Stress-related sick leave "has increased significantly" Posted by Editorial team

There has been a significant rise in stress-related absenteeism in the last two years, new research has revealed, which may have increased the need for time and attendance software in British companies.

A survey conducted by HR specialists The Curve Group found 62 per cent of business leaders and personnel executives have seen a growth in the number of cases of individuals being away from their jobs due to such issues in the past 24 months.

Co-owner of the body Lyndsey Simpson explained: "Redundancies or headcount freezes put pressure on the remaining workforce, leading to increased levels of stress."

Meanwhile, it seems those using online recruitment software are also facing difficulties, with three-quarters of firms polled saying they were struggling to hire top talent, despite high levels of unemployment.

Indeed, the Office for National Statistics recently reported that 29.1 million UK adults were out of work between June and August this year.
