5 products to help employees through cold and flu season

Because of the pandemic, many of us have paid much more attention to our health and wellness. Coming to work with the sniffles or a cough is frowned upon these days.

Even before COVID, the winter months were prime time for illness because of cold and flu season. Though you can’t control every instance of sickness, you want your employees to be safe and well. Equipping your office with a few products can help keep the place — including the air — clean and employees healthy and comfortable.

These five products will help you and your staff stay well during cold and flu season.

Call-outs were common during cold and flu season, even before the pandemic. These days, we’re even more cognizant of our health, wellness, and need for workplace safety. Having products on hand, such as humidifier and HEPA filter replacements, will make the indoor air more comfortable and cleaner. A UV light sanitizer box keeps items clean, and plenty of tea can help employees boost immune health. Though these products can help, they’re not going to prevent every instance of sickness. Encouraging employees to stay home when they are sick and offering paid time off or flexible arrangements, such as the ability to work from home, can prevent the spread of illness in the office.
