Flu Season Alert - 2009-11-24

Don't let this Cold and Flu season make your business sick!

How prepared is your business for the current cold and flu season? The swine flu is in headlines daily, and now they are talking about a third wave of the H1N1 virus. Here's an interesting tidbit that we encourage all of our clients to take seriously...

Swine Flu raises red flag for IT, business managers

"Experts say that many North American companies remain ill-prepared for the potential consequences of an H1N1 outbreak which could include employee absentee rates of 40 percent or more. With the possibility that 80 percent of some organizations' staff could be working from home, IT certainly has a tough job ahead." Nov. 3, 2009

Whether you agree with the media information and believe this will become a major pandemic, or you're a conspiracy theorist and think the hype is some diabolical plot to panic the world (admit it - we know you're out there...) the fact remains that the Swine Flu is causing businesses to report record absentee rates this season. Not only can your employees fall ill, their children are at increased risk, and school or daycare closures can severely impact your employees' ability to come into the office.

That's why Benson & Associates wants to work with you to implement a secure and reliable remote network that allows your employees access to critical files from any remote location. Whether they are away on business or vacation, or home with a sick child, they can access all necessary information securely and quickly, helping your business maintain productivity in uncertain times.

Please call our help desk at 403.247.1664 to learn how Benson & Associates can help your business stay profitable and functioning during this cold and flu season.
