Keep your team healthy by preparing them for flu season
Flu-related absences are one of the biggest causes of sickness absence in the UK, costing UK businesses an estimated £29 billion every year. Even in otherwise healthy individuals, flu typically takes between one and two weeks to fully recover from. This can cost businesses as much as £875 to £1,751 per employee. The flu vaccine is the best way to protect your employees against ill health and to minimise disruption to your business.
According to the NHS, more people are likely to get flu this winter as fewer people will have built up natural immunity to it during the COVID-19 pandemic. The flu strain varies each year, so it is best to get a vaccination annually.
