It’s easy for people to get sick in the workplace. When you’re sharing communal space with people, germs are easily passed, particularly if it’s cold and flu season. Bacteria runs rampant, which is why it’s important to have a professional crew to come in on a regular basis and disinfect all surfaces.

However, there are other ways to keep people healthy throughout the year. According to the Independent, having a plant in the workplace could help rid the air of chemicals and keep people healthier. The news provider reports this can help balance the bacteria in the air, keeping people in the office healthier for longer. Not only can this help purify the air, but it makes the office smell better as well. There are a lot of benefits to adding plants to the workplace.

You can also go one step further in keeping sick days at bay. The Huffington Post suggests encouraging employees to clean their desks often. The desk isn’t always covered by the cleaning crew, so it’s a good idea to empower your employees to take control of the mess and help do their part in preventing the spread of bacteria in the workplace, helping their coworkers stay healthy.
