Did you know only four in 10 employees say they’d be able to work from home for one month if a crisis ever caused them to stay away from the office for such a span?

Employers need workplace plans and policies for dealing with long-term crises like a pandemic flu. In the event of such a crisis, businesses will play a key role in protecting employee health and safety, as well as limiting negative impact on our economy.
