New Flu Poll: Employees Avoid Each Other to Prevent Flu, Yet Almost One-Third Not Changing Behavior
Date:10/19/2009

CHICAGO, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- As flu season is fast reaching its peak, public health messages urging flu prevention are taking hold among workers, with more than 70 percent saying they've changed their behavior, according to a Tell It Now(SM) survey released today from ComPsych Corporation. Almost half of employees have adopted an "avoidance" strategy, forgoing handshakes and the touching of workplace surfaces in order to stay healthy. ComPsych is the nation's leading provider of employee assistance programs (EAPs) and the worldwide leader in GuidanceResources (EAPs, behavioral health, wellness, work-life and crisis intervention services).

"The workplace is an essential environment for encouraging people to stay healthy," said Dr. Richard A. Chaifetz, Chairman and CEO of ComPsych. "While the survey results are a good indication that employees are responding to public health advice, employers should take note of the nearly 30 percent who are not inclined to change health behavior even in the face of a pandemic."
