Implementing H1N1/Flu inoculations can reduce workplace absenteeism up to 45%
OWINGS MILLS, MD – September 17, 2010 – For the third consecutive year, Employment Background Investigations, Inc. (EBI) is partnering with national healthcare service providers to offer an employer onsite flu shot program for companies and organizations. The programs are designed to mitigate overall production loss due to staff absenteeism.
“Many employers were impacted with lost revenue due to last year’s flu pandemic,” comments Richard Kurland, EBI’s President and CEO. “Our proactive approach to wellness provides employers a cost-effective way to minimize impact to their company bottom line during the upcoming flu season. Our program also takes the pressure off HR departments by providing complete setup, management, administration and communication tools.” Kurland also stated EBI’s vaccination program can be tailored to meet any company’s budget, size, or number of locations.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) proposes that a vaccination is the best protection against the flu and is encouraging everyone to get vaccinated against H1N1 and the seasonal flu. EBI’s onsite vaccination program makes it easy for employees to get vaccinated thereby increasing the percentage of participation and ensuring a safer workplace. More information on flu statistics, program availability and a future webcast can be found on www.ebiinc.com.
