Rise in Presenteeism at the Workplace - Drastically affects Company bottom lines

A company with employees who are physically present at work but not functioning at their full potential because of an illness or other medical condition may have a "presenteeism" problem that can drastically affect a company's bottom line.

There are many ways to handle presenteeism in the workplace

  • Corporate culture and lifestyle have the big impact on this. In many companies, employees are working even when they are sick because of work overload. Genuinely ill employees must be encouraged to stay home.
  • Establishing an employee wellness program may help workers focus on their health, which can lead to the prevention of serious illnesses and other conditions that impact productivity.
  • Another way to help reduce both presenteeism and absenteeism is to implement a PTO (Paid time off or personal time off) program, allowing employees to use paid leave at their discretion.
  • Some employees habitually work for long hours for sake of job security. This leads to tiredness and less productivity. This should be avoided.
  • Work addiction is also one way of presenteesism i.e., regularly checking emails and company updates when they are outside of working hours. Taking a break from work is necessarily important for each every one.
