Don't Leave Your Office Unprotected from the Flu
Each year, seasonal influenza has a marked impact on employers. The seasonal flu can cause increased absenteeism, decreased productivity, and higher health care costs. As an employer, you are well-positioned to help keep your employees healthy and minimize the flu’s impact on your business.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the following strategies for employers to help fight the flu:
- Host a flu vaccination clinic. Doing so can help educate employees about the importance of vaccination, and make it easier for them to get vaccinated.
- Educate employees. Emphasize the importance of getting the flu vaccine and educate employees on common flu prevention strategies.
