*Absenteeism is a phenomenon where employees are absent from work frequently due to illness or poor health, or without permission. The term “presenteeism” was coined by combining “absenteeism” with the word “present.” For a long time, the lost productivity due to absenteeism has traditionally been regarded as a problem in corporate labor management. Recently, however, it has been found that presenteeism, in which an employee is physically present but cannot concentrate fully on work, causes greater loss for the organization as a whole.
