Bradford Factor

The Bradford factor is a system which is used to evaluate the disruption an employee’s absence causes to your team or business.

Without going into the algorithm too much, it operates on the theory that – Jack taking a day off every Tuesday for 5 weeks is much more damaging to the company than Janet taking a whole (5 day) week off in that time.

Make sense? Well if you can’t wrap your head around it, there is nothing to fear as we have a fully working Bradford Factor calculator here.

It is an interesting subject in HR as some are dedicated worshippers and others complete non-believers.
