A new survey has shown that office-based businesses are at risk of mass staff illness, as a result of the changeable weather we are currently experiencing and poor hygiene practices.
83% of full time office staff are said to continue to go into work despite knowingly having a cold or viral infection and 81% of staff believe they have picked up an illness from a work colleague.
The poor provision of effective cleaning and hygiene products in office environments contributes towards these percentages along with the bad habits of staff working in the office who don’t wash their hands after using the toilet, leave dirty plates on desks and spilt food and drink around the office.
Staff absence has an impact on the business bottom line and also affects staffs attitude in the work place and productivity, if more businesses had the right cleaning processes in place, they could help the prevention of illnesses spreading and staff morale would improve.
