  • How to help your employees stay healthy this winter
    Your business suffers when your employees get sick, but there are ways to keep your workforce healthy, Stephanie Christensen writes. Encourage your employees to exercise and to take preventive steps such as getting flu shots, she recommends. Also, allow your employees to work from home if they aren't feeling well so their germs don't spread. Intuit Small Business Blog (11/30) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
