With the influenza season approaching, many businesses are incorporating a workplace flu vaccination program as part of their Health and Wellbeing Program. Being absent from work due to illness costs Australian business owners more than $7 billion each year in lost wages. Whilst attending to work when unwell cost employers up to $37 billion in lost productivity.*
Flu or Influenza is a major cause of both absenteeism and presenteeism with 48,276 cases of influenza being reported in Australia in 2018.**
Severe outbreaks pose a significant financial impact on a number of individual businesses in Australia and New Zealand.
A staff flu vaccination is an excellent way to protect your employees against the flu in the wintertime. This will also improve your productivity levels, raise the morale of staff and lead to a healthier and happier workforce. Major studies indicate that workplaces that offer a corporate flu vaccination before the season sets in will see a far greater savings than what they ever spent on the flu shot program.
As effective as an in-office flu vaccination can be alone, the program is viewed by the workforce as a plank along the way to a complete program for implementing improvements in the health of the employee. These Health and Wellness programs develop a strategic approach to the health of employees that can include: health checks, diabetes risk assessments, skin checks, mental health checks, nutrition and lifestyle seminars, regular health and physical assessments and participation in fitness programs.
The health programs aim to develop an awareness to deliver a holistic solution for balancing life. Responsible managers want to make sure their corporate money is being used appropriately, so they implement strategies that let them monitor their wellness and health outcomes. Regular assessments are a great way to build data around the programs and track the benefits that come from the investment.
