As a critical component of thriving administrative culture and management, I find the need to improve workplace outcomes by better understanding factors that influence worker demographics and employment characteristics influenced by private health insurance. As such, I conducted this quantitative longitudinal, panel survey analysis on Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) variables. Fixed effects regression is employed to analyze the factors among the two predictors and one outcome variable. The interactions among the thirteen variables tested and mediation from private health insurance are examined and substantiated via a series of Sobel tests. Results showed that independent variables of employment characteristics and private health insurance influenced the likelihood of sickness absenteeism and productivity. Additionally, results showed that private health insurance partially mediates the influence of the independent variables on the outcomes. These findings suggest that businesses and policymakers ought to ensure health insurance coverage for all workers.
