The Bradford Factor – What is it?

The Bradford Factor is a system used by Dudley College to calculate a score for each employee’s absence in a year. The higher your BF score then the ‘more disruption’ you are causing the college. This is calculated using the following equation:

B=S^{2} X D

B = the Bradford Factor
S = the number of absences in the period measured
D = the number of days in total over the period

You can contact Personnel at any point to ask for your score and what implications it may have.
