As a business owner, return on investment (ROI) doesn’t have to be explained to you because you know and understand that if you invest your money and time into something and it provides you with excellent results then this is money very well spent. Many businesses all across Australia are always trying to cut costs but hopefully not at the expense of good customer service. Everybody knows that in order to make money, you need to spend some and so if your business is suffering from low production levels and it is becoming less efficient because of employee absences then there is something that you can do to address this very thing.
It comes in the form of corporate flu vaccination and this is when you as the employer set up a date and time for all of your employees to get their flu shot. You are been very proactive when doing such a thing because you are getting right out there in front of the flu season and ensuring that the vast majority of your employees don’t get it at all. You may be thinking of the costs of doing such a thing but the following are just some of the benefits that will provide you an excellent return on your investment.
– Production levels will go up – Every line manager knows the difficulties that are experienced when a member of staff takes a day off sick because it affects the whole production line and this means that the business is not as efficient as it could be. It can be incredibly frustrating as an employer to have staff taking days off sick due to the flu and other illnesses and so it makes perfect sense that you would want to put something in place that reduces the chances of getting the flu altogether.
– It reduces your health premiums – Every employer here in Australia has to provide workplace health insurance for all employees and if your staff are suffering from sickness and you have to make a claim then this affects how much money you pay next year for your premium. If fewer members of staff are taking time off due to sickness then your health premium will remain the same or maybe it might even reduce.
– It encourages good health – If you are taking the time to look out for your employees then hopefully it will provide some kind of domino effect and encourage your staff to take more interest in their health outcomes. By then getting themselves checked regularly and providing them with their shots, you’re doing everything that you possibly can to keep your business successful.
Once it starts getting into the cold times of the year, you can be sure that the flu is coming your way so get out there in front of it and stop it in its tracks by offering your staff free flu shots. You are prepared for everything else with regard to your business so why not this?
