Survey Shows Flu Virus Set to Make Workers, Businesses Ill this Season
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Nearly 80 percent of office workers polled come to work even when they
know they are sick, according to the third annual Flu Season Survey from
Staples, an increase of 20 percent over last year. For those that stay
home, more than two-thirds return to work when they are still
contagious, putting coworkers' health and business productivity at risk.
In a typical year, the flu virus is responsible for approximately 70
million missed workdays and an estimated $10 billion in lost office
productivity. Survey results also show that employees could do more to
keep the workplace healthy: half of office workers don't clean their
workspaces regularly and are unaware of the dirtiest surfaces in the
Staples offers solutions to help maintain a healthy workplace by keeping
things clean - whether a home office, small-to-mid-sized business or
large enterprise. From simple items, such as hand sanitizer, to
large-scale industrial cleaning products and techniques, Staples has the
solutions to keep workers healthy and productive.
