Depot warns of office illness risks

New research from Office Depot has found that poor hygiene practices are leaving UK offices at risk of staff shortages this winter.

Out of the 500 UK-based office workers surveyed, 83% have gone into work with a cold, while 81% believe they have picked up an illness from a colleague in the workplace.

The survey suggested that poor provision of effective cleaning and hygiene products is partly to blame, with 30% of businesses failing to supply anti-bacterial handwash or soap, and only 8% of offices offered facial tissues.
