Every year, Human Resources presents the Board of Governors with a report on key health indicators at the university. The report provides a snapshot of the health of our faculty and staff, which includes statistics on the average number of paid sick leave days taken by staff.

In preparation for this year’s report, we request that you ensure your department’s administrator enters sick leave statistics for the 2020 calendar year by Friday, January 29, 2021.

With the transition to Workday, sick leave statistics will need to be submitted for two periods: January 1 to November 1, and November 2 to December 31, 2020. 

Full instructions can be found at here.

Aggregate sick leave data from 2019 and prior years
To help you benchmark sick leave usage in your department or unit, we have aggregated sick leave statistics from 2015 to 2019. This data reflects staff sick leave usage only, and is representative of the departments and units that have reported their data to Human Resources.

2019 highlights

  • The average number of staff sick days taken in 2019 was 6.2 days (a decrease from 6.6 days in 2018).
  • The average number of staff sick days in 2019 was 6.6 days for the Vancouver campus (a decrease from 6.9 days in 2018).
  • The average number of staff sick days in 2019 was 3.8 days for the Okanagan campus (a decrease from 4.3 days in 2018).
