Although the world has started to return to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic, illnesses like the flu and RSV have not disappeared. Many physicians say an increase in flu and RSV cases once the lockdown ended as people no longer have immunity to the airborne viruses. In January 2021, 3.7 million people missed work due to illness, but in January 2022, 7.8 million workers missed due to an illness – approximately a 210% increase.
The record increase in employee sick time clearly indicates how important it is for a workplace to be as clean as possible. The average employee spends a third of their total lifetime at their workplace (roughly 90,000 hours), and employees take approximately three sick days per month on average. Imagine the productivity growth if you could help your employees cut back on their sick time by keeping their space as germ-free as possible.
