Six Simple Ways to Encourage Your Employees to Receive a Flu Shot

The flu is one of the most infectious viruses in the United States with millions of Americans contracting the flu every year. As such, the flu is also one of the most common reasons for missed work.

Fortunately, your employees can significantly decrease their chances of contracting the flu by getting the flu vaccine.

With that in mind, here are a few simple steps you can take to improve the vaccination rates of your employees:
