Description
A mini survey on the quality of work has recently been carried out as a pilot and the raw data from the first three departments, Research & Design, Administration and Marketing has just been collected. The People Practice manager has asked you to represent the data as percentages and analyse the survey results.

Review the sets of raw numerical data that have been provided in the tables below and convert them to percentages to illustrate the results.
Provide an analysis of these, identifying themes, patterns and trends that appear to be occurring.
As a part of this analysis, consider the possible issues that have been revealed by the data.
Calculate how many working days are lost in a three-month period for each department based on the above figures.
Estimate the projected average loss of working days over a 12-month period if these rates were to continue.
Calculate the costs of pay assuming all absentees are contractually paid full remuneration whilst off sick during the three-month period. (1.4)
