Keep Your Office Flu-Free This Winter

It’s that time of year again – flu and cold season.

You can double up on vitamin C and strengthen your immune system with regular exercise and enough sleep, but there’s no guarantee that the flu bug won’t hit you or your staff this winter. A flu epidemic in your office can leave you with a skeleton crew, resulting in missed deadlines and decreased productivity. Fortunately, there’s plenty you can do to reduce the chances of a flu outbreak.

  • Recommend the flu vaccine. To keep your office as healthy and germ-free as possible, encourage your staff to get their annual flu vaccination. It takes about two weeks for the vaccine to become effective, so they’ll need to act quick.
  • Stock up on disinfecting wipes. Keep disinfecting wipes in the break room, conference room and copy room, and ask your staff to keep wipes or hand sanitizer at their desks. This can greatly reduce the risk of the flu in your office. Encourage everyone to wash or sanitize their hands before eating and after coughing or sneezing.
  • Hire an office janitorial company. If you don’t have an office janitorial company, now’s the time to hire one. Eco-Green Office Cleaning Services provides customizable packages to keep your office clean and sanitized. Not only can we offer general janitorial services such as vacuuming, sweeping/mopping, dusting and trash removal, we’ll also disinfect commonly touched surfaces in your office. This includes light switches, door knobs, telephones, computer keyboards, etc.
