People get sick all the time, and it’s important for your company to take care of not just their customers, but their employees as well, the best that they can. Over the course of the 2018-2019 flu season, over 37.4 million people fell ill, over 17.3 million visited their doctors and over 531,000 people were hospitalized*.
As the weather turns cold and germs run amok, the need to take care of oneself is just as necessary as ever. Promoting a healthy workplace environment keeps any business running smoothly, otherwise efficiency could plummet drastically.
Some tips for improving workplace health and stopping the spread of the flu could include:
- Encouraging all employees to get their flu vaccine every year.
- Develop policies that encourage employees to telework so that they can care of themselves and their families when sick.
- Provide resources and information on risk factors of the flu and who might be at high risk for flu complications.
- Provide products and resources that promote preventive action against the flu.
