Why use the Bradford Factor Scoring System?

We understand that short, frequent, sickness absences are a major concern for businesses because arranging temporary cover is challenging. Leaving other colleagues to fill in the gaps resulting in increased team pressure and costs for your business.

From our experience, we believe keeping track of your workforce’s Bradford Score is important, as when used subjectively in parallel with the recommended sickness absence trigger points it provides businesses with the information required to successfully reduce absenteeism.

That’s why we’ve integrated the Bradford Factor formula into our software, helping you to easily calculate and view how your employees’ absences are affecting your company. You can view this information on screen, in a CSV export or printed out. It’s your choice. Also, we know calculating a Bradford Score for your whole team is time consuming, so our system does this for you automatically, whenever needed.

What is the Bradford Scoring System?

The Bradford Scoring System is a simple formula used by businesses to calculate a ‘score’ for each employee based on individual absence patterns. This number can then be mapped against Bradford Scoring Thresholds, allowing organisations to easily manage short term absences effectively, and check to see when they have become excessive.
