SKDC staff are sicker than average- but they are getting better!
Staff at South Kesteven District Council have above average levels of sickness- but attendance appears to be improving.
A council report this month said in 2018-19, SKDC employees were on average sick for ten days compared with an average 11 days in 2017-18. The Local Government Association average is 8.8 days.
Back and neck issues were responsible for a fifth of absences, as were stress, depression and mental health issues.
