Don’t let the flu season wreak havoc on your workplace! Adopting these three basic flu-prevention strategies can help keep your company—and your bottom line—healthy:
  1. Educate your employees on how to stay healthy and avoid the flu. Also make sure PTO or sick leave policies are clear, encouraging contagious employees to stay home.
  2. Keep everything germ-free by frequently cleaning common areas and providing hand sanitizer in places such as the break room or cafeteria.
  3. Give employees the opportunity to get vaccinated. Providing on-site vaccinations or enabling employees to get the flu shot for free at a nearby clinic or pharmacy are two options for ensuring most employees get vaccinated.
