Cost Reduction

CIRCADIAN’s comprehensive study of over five hundred 24/7 facilities has shown that working extended hours is associated with elevated employee costs compared to the daytime workforce. The good news is most of these costs are readily addressable.


The average direct cost of absenteeism per shiftwork employee is $2,102 more per year than the cost of a traditional daytime employee. The underlying causes include fatigue and ill-health.
