How to cut down sick days and improve efficiency?

It is common to see people take sick days, especially during flu season. However, each sick day represents a cost to the company and correspondingly an extra workload for those remaining in the office. Better office hygiene helps cut down sick days and in turn improve efficiency.

In the end, being sick is not fun for the employee nor for the employer. In the UK, for example, 63 million workdays are lost each year due to sick days. In an office environment where IT equipment is usually being shared, illnesses quickly spread. By maintaining better hygiene in the office, companies can reduce the number of sick days and in turn cut the costs resulting from absences.
