More than one in four finance directors say that they have experienced staff absenteeism as a direct result of the recent heatwaves.

This week’s Accountancy Age/Reed Accountancy Big Question found that 27% of companies put lower attendance down to the hot weather. But employees bunking off work have obviously not been using suntan lotion to hide their activities. ‘Circumstantial evidence indicates that a proportion of our sales reps have been sunbathing,’ said one respondent.

But over half of those finance chiefs questioned claimed not to have experienced any absenteeism with one respondent putting it down to having an ‘attendance bonus scheme’.
