Bradford factor calculator
Bradford Factor explained
The Bradford Factor is a simple formula that calculates a score for each employee by applying a relative weighting to their unplanned absence. Designed around the principle that repeat, short term absence has greater operational impact, higher scores represent increased disruption for the organisation.
Bradford scores help identify areas of problem absenteeism by highlighting patterns of absence that are worthy of further investigation.
The formula for the Bradford Factor is:
E x E x D = B
Where E is the number of episodes of absence and D is the total number of days absent in a rolling 52 week period.
