Some workers are just overly dedicated to their jobs – the probable workplace martyr; and whether they’re coughing or sneezing they decide to come into work anyway.
This article I read suggests a few things and this one particularly stood out:
What if there was a quarantine room made especially just for sick people?
Just kidding! We aren’t that evil. But seriously, we don’t want to have to come into work knowing we are going to be surrounded by germs because other people didn’t want to stay at home. And that’s also why if you’re the one that’s unwell, you should take the day off to recover.
One person’s missed productivity is better than the whole team.
Be a hard worker, but don’t be overly hardworking. It’s not worth it when you’re sick.
