Nobody likes flu season, but the economic impact on businesses large and small can be especially devastating. Even one sick employee can spread the virus throughout a company’s workforce, leading to lost wages, productivity and profits. That’s why it is considered a smart business practice for companies to offer flu shots to employees.

Offering flu shots to employees makes it easy for them to get their annual flu shot without having to take time off work. Not getting vaccinated can also lead to time off work. Many people don’t realize that the flu typically results in 70 million missed work days for Americans each year. Compare that to the five minutes it will take to get a flu shot at your workplace, and you can see why getting a flu shot at work makes good financial sense.

With flu season lasting from October through January, many companies have already hosted flu clinics for employees. But it’s not too late – hosting flu clinic even as late as December can still provide many benefits. Some surveys suggest flu shots at work can even improve employer/employee relations. Company-sponsored wellness programs continue to rate very highly in employee satisfaction polls.
