The flu season is upon us and it can have a negative effect on the workplace. Every year, millions of people take time off for themselves, to care for a sick family member, or show up to work with reduced productivity. Here are some tips to minimize the effects of illness in your work environment:
- Promote vaccination
- Post signs for proper hand washing, cough etiquette, and provide resources such as hand sanitizer
- Keep the workplace clean
- Encourage those who already have the flu to stay home
- Encourage employees to reexamine leave policies
- Encourage employees to get plenty of rest and exercise
