Employee flu vaccination has proven to be a very wise investment. Your employees are the centre and heart of your business, and you rely on them to function correctly. Unfortunately, during the winter months, Flu is on the rise and more and more of your employees will begin taking time off work. It isn’t their fault. They have caught the influenza virus and are so unwell that they cannot get out of bed. They may suffer from headaches, nausea and fatigue. Even if they chose to attend work, their productivity levels would not be high and you would notice a decrease in workload.
The solution? Hosting a flu vaccination session where your staff can get their annual employee flu vaccination shot will prevent them from catching the annoying virus. They will be able to work at maximum capabilities through the months ahead and you won’t notice a decrease in productivity. It’s understood that investing in employee flu vaccination can save a significant amount of money during the Winter months. In addition, you’ll also be able to reduce absenteeism by as much as 45%. Research shows that your employees will take an average of 2.8 days off work per flu season – which is a lot of time lost. Through saving on lost production time, you will be able to see an increase in your businesses overall profits through the season.
Furthermore, it’s important for your company to be ethically focused. Your employees are the heart and soul of your business. By investing in employee flu vaccination, you are giving them an added benefit of working with you. Many of the major organizations and businesses who employ thousands of people invest in on-site flu vaccinations each and every year. Apart from the noticeable benefits of increased profits and increased productivity, you will also be showing your employees that you actually care about them and their health.
Corporate Care can set up an onsite employee flu vaccination clinic customised to your business.
