Employee Absence in Public and Private Organizations

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

We study employee absence in Danish public and private organizations. Using data from four private and four public organizations we establish sector differences and that absence is predominantly an individualized phenomenon. Because the within-group variation in absence clearly dominates the between-group variation, we conclude that organizations need to invoke individualized policies to reduce employee absence, and we establish that incentives related to promotions and dismissals can be useful tools, as absence behaviour interacts with such incentives.
