How to Keep Your Workforce (and Your Bottom Line) Healthy This Flu Season
With flu season costing employers billions of dollars in lost productivity each year, staving off a full-scale outbreak in your office is critical.
The key to keeping your workforce as healthy as positive is to be proactive. HR Drive.com’s article, 3 Tips for Getting a Workforce Through Flu Season, offers advice on how to make sure you are doing everything in your power to keep your employees healthy and productive. Here is what the article recommends:
- Offer flu shots at work
- Encourage employees and their families to get vaccinated
- Ask that employees who feel sick stay home
Mandatory workplace vaccinations aren’t really an option unless you are in the health care industry, but you can still be proactive when it comes to the flu. Set the tone for your employees and let them know that the flu is serious business.
