According to a fourth annual survey from Staples Advantage, 90 percent of employees go to work despite being sick. With flu season starting, it’s time to think about how to prevent sharing the flu, and keeping employees healthy.
Staples recommends these easy steps to help maintain a healthier work environment:
1. Offer/encourage a telecommuting program to prevent sick workers coming to the office.
2. Stock up on sanitizing wipes and antibacterial soaps, as well as consider installing touch-free restroom fixtures to avoid unnecessary contact with germs.
3. Educate your workers on how often they should clean their desks, how long to stay home when sick and what areas in the office need to be frequently disinfected.
