Most Workers Come to Work When Feeling Sick

Menlo Park, Calif. — Jan. 28

Seven in 10 professionals admitted they frequently go to work when they’re feeling sick, a new OfficeTeam survey shows. Managers are aware of the issue: Sixty-five percent said that ailing employees head into the office at least somewhat frequently.

The surveys of workers and managers were developed by OfficeTeam, a staffing service specializing in the placement of highly skilled administrative professionals. They were conducted by an independent research firm and include responses from more than 400 U.S. workers aged 18 years or older and employed in office environments. The survey also interviewed 300 senior managers at U.S. companies with 20 or more employees.
