Abstract This report provides detailed information on sick leave trends in the German economy, by industry sector, presents recent findings and evaluates the reasons of absenteeism faced by business. It focuses on stress, mental health and well-being. The importance of mental illness as a cause of disability has increased steadily in recent years. Often these disorders go hand in hand with long absences, which for both employees and employers involve high costs. The report includes examples and case studies highlighting the experiences and initiatives of enterprises to address this issue. Contents include: current statistics on the state of health of workers in all sectors; the main types of diseases responsible for absenteeism; the number of occupational accidents; comparative analyses by region, company size and occupation; distribution of absence by months of the year and day of the week.
