2010 Flu Season Is Here - Will Your Workforce Be Protected?
Each year, 5%-20% of the total population is affected by some degree of influenza. For an employer, flu season has a direct impact on the company bottom line. Flu symptoms will cause workers to miss approximately 1.3 days of work, with a loss of production per employee calculated at $575-$1,000 per week.
With vaccination effective rates of 75%-90%, implementing onsite flu shots can save your company thousands of dollars and greatly reduce absenteeism. For example, a company with 1,000 employees can save over $80,000. Yearly flu vaccinations should begin in October, and continue throughout the first of the new-year.
