Preseenteeism

Staff Wellbeing and presenteeism – good or not?

The new CIPD/Simplyhealth Health and Wellbeing at Work survey reveals the latest trends to support employers in building healthier workplaces. In the report, presenteeism (people attending work when unwell) is reported to have tripled in the last 8 years, since 2010. Presenteeism could account for as much loss in productivity as absence.  Staff who are ill will not work productively and could infect others.  So, what can you do to ensure staff adopt healthy and productive behaviour?
