Employees are continuing to ignore their symptoms when they’re sick, coming into work so they don’t fall behind on daily tasks. As cold and flu season approaches, this could become a major problem, with a large amount of business professionals infecting the workplace.

Overall, 86% of business professionals said they at least ‘sometimes’ go into the office when sick, up slightly from last year, according to an Office Pulse study of 1,228 white-collar workers.

When looking at job title, senior executives (64%) were most likely to work when sick, compared to senior managers (46%), middle managers (48%) and junior managers (38%).
