What is presenteeism in the workplace?

Presenteeism means showing up for work without being productive, often accompanied with illness or health issues. Anyone who dragged themselves to work with a headache is an example of presenteeism.

The effects of a presenteeism culture at work are numerous. Studies have proven that unwell workers are less productive and efficient since they are not able to perform at their highest level.

Additionally, if the illness is spreadable, productivity level at the group level will decline further as other employees are likely to be affected together.
