Did you know: The average desktop has 428x more germs than the average toilet seat 2

Germs are everywhere, and as the seasons change and the damp, colder months arrive, germs seem to make the rounds faster and thrive in even the smallest of spaces.
The cost of cold and flu season to your office could be greater than you think. In 2013, CBC reported that sick days cost the Canadian economy $16.6B dollars as the average worker took 9.3 sick days. So protecting your employees from nasty germs could be of great value to your workplace. Not only will your employees be healthier and happier, but your bottom line will be too.

One of the best ways to tackle cold and flu season at the office is to improve the overall environment of your workplace. Stocking up on germ fighting products before the flu season starts in order to arm your workplace with the proper tools can help you fight the germs before they spread.
