Flu season is in full swing, make sure your office doesn’t come down with a nasty bug.
Your office is a breeding ground for illness and a bout of the flu could take your entire workforce out of commission. One way to preserve your business’s productivity this fall and winter is to be proactive about preparing for the flu. Stop the flu from spreading through your office by taking these precautions.
1) Practice Good Hygiene
Encourage your employees to wash their hands as often as possible, especially after shaking hands or handling equipment that others have touched. Additionally, you can prevent the spread of illness-causing bacteria by offering your employees hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial cleaning wipes.
2) Encourage Employees to Take Sick Time
If you notice that an employee is sniffling or starting to cough, encourage them to take some time off or offer them the opportunity to work from home. Keeping sick employees out of the office can prevent your other employees from being infected as well.
3) Promote Good Nutrition
Eating well and drinking a lot of fluids are some of the best ways to fight off the flu. Encourage your employees to add immunity boosting foods to their daily diets. Additionally, consider offering your employees tea and other warm beverages to stave off chills and soothe any sore throats or coughing. Green tea or citrus teas are great options that will help you fight the flu.
