What is the Bradford factor score?

The Bradford Factor is a simple formula that calculates a score for each employee by applying weighting to his or her unplanned absence. It was designed on the basis that repeat, short-term absence has bigger impact on business operation, higher scores represent increased disruption for the organisation.

e-days automatically calculates the Bradford Factor score for all employees over a rolling 52 week period, making patterns of sickness absence easy to spot and subsequently address.

Organisations can choose to display the scores on employee dashboards, manager dashboards or simply just HR team dashboards ensuring scores remain private & protected.

What is the Bradford factor scoring formula?

The formula is E x E x D = B Where E is the number of episodes of absence and D is the total number of days absent in a rolling 52 week period.
