Bradford Factor Advice for Individuals and Employers

Our website offers guidance about how to calculate Bradford Scores, and the origins of the bradford factor.

We hope both employers and employees find our Bradford Factor information useful.

We are a software company, so we do not offer HR or legal advice.  If you need Bradford factor advice for a particular situation, we recommend the following sources:


If you have any questions about your bradford factor score (or any other HR issue) , you should first of all contact your line manager or HR Manager.  They are normally happy to explain your Bradford Score and correct any errors if necessary.  We are unable to help.

If your HR Manager cannot help, and you still feel unhappy, then we recommend you can seek advice from your trade union (if you have one), an advice service such as Citizens Advice or ACAS, or contact your local solicitor.  


Activ Absence automatically calculates Bradford Factor Scores, and our software will be configured to support your HR policy.

We offer full support to HR administrators on configuring and using Activ Absence, however for HR policy advice, we recommend speaking to one of our specialist Employment Law partners or HR Consultants.

Our partners are not part of our business, and any arrangement is between you and them, however they are familiar with Activ Absence.  They are experts in their field and offer a high level of support to Activ Absence clients.
