Employees are coming into work sick more often than managers realize, according to a recent OfficeTeam survey.

Employees who said they “very frequently” go to work when they’re feeling sick: 45%. Managers who thought this was common practice: 17%.

Unfortunately, people make more mistakes when they come to work feeling ill. Some tips for managers and team leaders:

  • Communicate expectations. Let people know that you prefer they stay home when they’re not feeling well.
  • Set an example. People are more likely to stay home when they’re sick if others do the same.
  • Give options. Can people telecommute if they think they’re coming down with a cold?
