How One Company Fought the Flu
Date:12/30/2010

we really prevent something from happening? In the company here, I think we had two H1N1 cases that were family members, not the employees themselves," Boue said. "I would speculate that yes, hand cleanliness contributed to it, but I think our policy that if you were sick you should stay home probably helped more."

The H1N1 scare may have created unintended public health benefits that continue to this day, he said.

"I think the whole H1N1 scare had a mindset change with many people to disinfect their hands more than they did in the past," Boue said, noting that human resources colleagues at other companies report similar observations. "Before H1N1, when flu season came along, we sent out communications about health and safety, but H1N1 really scared people into behavioral change. I see all the time in the lobby people as they get out of the elevator get a quick squirt of the hand sanitizer."

After a pause, he added: "I think the hand sanitizer industry must be doing much better than it was before."
