Stop The Spread of Germs in Your Workplace

Germs are all over the office including keyboards, office phones and even on the handle of the community coffee pot. All of these can lead to your employees getting sick, resulting in employee abseentism. The Journal of Environmental Medicine (JOEM) suggests that respiratory illness alone can cost as much as $134 per employee per year and 1.4 hours of lost productivity per day.1 See below for more stats and tips on how to stay healthy in your workplace.

Consider the benefits of a G&K Services Program
