According to research conducted by the University of East Anglia (UEA) in the United Kingdom and Stockholm University, there is a clear link between the health of employees and their satisfaction with their treatment by their employer.
According to researchers, the attitudes and behaviour of colleagues towards people returning to work from sick leave, impacts whether or not they feel like they are being fairly treated at work.
This research may help managers facilitate the smooth return to work of employees following a period of absence. It could also have implications for how management supports people battling with long-term health issues at work.
