A Healthy, Happy Office
Maximum productivity in the workplace is a goal for all business owners and managers. While there are many different strategies and products that promise to help acheive this, one of the easiest is often overlooked: Helping your staff stay healthy. A business suffers
when employees are absent due to illness. Presenteeism, or attending work while sick, has an even more negative effect on a company. According to the Harvard Business Review, presenteeism costs businesses more than $150 billion each year. Here are some tips for maintaining a healthy place of business:
- Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects such as counters, keyboards, phones, and drinking faucets.
- Regularly wipe down your own desk. Clorox Disinfecting Wipes are great for this.
- Don't forget the breakroom! Faucets, coffee-pot handles, and microwave buttons need disinfecting too.
- Keep cleaning products and hand-sanitizers easily accessible for all employees.
