To help employers counter the effects of presenteeism, The Standard has outlined five effective solutions:

1. Working with a disability carrier that provides on-site assistance

to help employees with a personal, face-to-face approach.

2. Ensuring the disability carrier provides quick and effective

ergonomic interventions that can provide employees with

equipment to improve their productivity.

3. Improving employer pharmacy programs

to reduce the effects of medical conditions

that can contribute to lost productivity.

4. Integrating a company’s health management programs.

health management programs such as wellness initiatives,

employee assistance plans and disease management.
