How often do you go to work feeling sick?
Headache, stomach ache, sniffles, low fever… Do you go into work when you’re not feeling well?
About 70% of employees do, according to an OfficeTeam survey.
How many said they never come in when they feel sick?
Fewer than 15%
While it may be noble to “tough it out” and head into the office despite feeling unwell, odds are you won’t be terribly productive, you may get even sicker, and you’ll probably infect your co-workers.
Best bet: Especially with a fever, take a day to rest and hydrate.
