Using case studies of UB employees, a number of cases were highlighted where absence had been reduced or prevented due to the physiotherapy service provided by Connect.
Using average wage figures for UB employees, we then estimated the absence saving and applied the wage figures to give an estimate of monetary savings.
In a six month study period (at six hours per week), we saved £10,786. We estimated that increasing to a 9 hour service would lead to savings of over £35,000 per annum.
United Biscuits agreed and the service was increased.
