When Employees Show Up to Work Not Fully There

Presenteeism is the performance-sapping issue that is the measure of lost productivity due to employees showing up for work not fully engaged. The impact of poor employee engagement on the corporate bottom line can be devastating. By some estimates, presenteeism is 7.5 times more costly to employers than absenteeism. World of Wellness Home Care specializes in helping employers, through non-medical home care services to employees and their families, address productivity issues arising from presenteeism.

Alert employers recognize that employees may be distracted by a variety of family and other life issues. Even the best employees can be challenged by concern for elderly and disabled family members not capable of managing basic activities of daily living (short- or long-term) left home alone. In such cases, the employee may feel the need to call home several times during the work day to ensure that everything is alright with their loved one. A distracted employee may only function at a fraction of his or her normal capacity despite being paid the same as fully-engaged employees. This employee may also be more prone to making errors, causing larger fall-outs in worker productivity and in some cases, uneven workload distribution.

At no cost to you, the employer, our professionally trained and thoroughly-screened, compassionate caregivers provide many services including supervision with bathing, dressing, grooming, social interaction, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, errand services, grocery shopping and outings such as recreational activities.
