How to Survive Recession and Swine Flu Outbreak in Your Employees
Date:11/11/2009

During the current recession businesses are under even more pressure to perform during the swine flu pandemic. Absenteeism is expected to have a serious impact on businesses large and small over the coming months. While some large businesses have put contingency plans in place to provide anti viral medication for their employees, many medium and smaller businesses are not protected. Influenza Protection Limited (http://www.influenzaprotection.co.uk) have developed an on-line screening and dispensing programme for employees that will provide businesses with the anti viral protection against swine flu that could make a big difference to them in the coming months.

(PRWeb UK) November 11, 2009 -- During the current recession the last thing a company needs is to have staff shortages due to an outbreak of swine flu in the workforce. A West Midlands company has developed an on-line screening programme to help all businesses protect themselves and their staff from the effects of swine flu.

With 84000 new cases of H1N1 (swine flu) last week, and numbers increasing rapidly, businesses will shortly start to see significant levels of employee absenteeism due to swine flu over the coming weeks. While larger organisations may be able to absorb loses from absenteeism, medium and smaller businesses are less able to cope and could see significant finacial loss during periods of a flu pandemic.

Many larger organisations have already ensured that their employees are protected with anti-viral medication, to help reduce the levels of absence and reduce lost income potential. This protection is now available to all businesses from less than £50 per employee from Influenza Protection Limited http:www.influenzaprotection.co.uk

Anti-viral protection for businesses

The current UK Department of Health policy is to only prescribe anti-viral medication to people showing symptoms of Pandemic Influenza. But for businesses, by this time, employees are already taking time off and have also probably passed the virus onto other members of the organisation. The result is an on-going wave of absenteeism, during which time the business is losing money. And during a recession, the last thing businesses need is a prolonged period of staff shortages and lost productivity.

Influenza Protection have created an online medical portal at http://www.influenzaprotection.co.uk that has been designed specifically to enable employees, as part of a company scheme, to register for and receive anti-viral medication as a solution to avoid absenteeism during the present Pandemic, with courses available from £45.94 + p&p.

To access the medical screening portal companies need a unique access code - this is because, in line with government guidelines, Influenza Protection are restricting medication to business employees only. Companies can register their businesses on line at www.influenzaprotection.co.uk .

With the flu virus, symptoms normally exhibit around 24 hours after infection, during which time the virus can be spreading to work colleagues. Where workforces are able to access anti-viral medication to take when they suspect that they have been exposed to the virus (such as when a work colleague gets swine flu) the risk of wide spread absenteeism can be reduced, helping companies to continue operating where others may struggle.
