Presentizm Olgusu

Çalışanın rahatsızlanmasına rağmen işine devam etmesi olgusu Presentizm olarak tanımlanır. Bu olgunun yaşanmasına yol açan çalışana, işyeri ortamına ve çalışma sistemine ilişkin pek çok etken vardır. Presentizmin sonuçları sadece gizli bir verimlilik kaybı değil aynı zamanda çalışanlar için güvenlik ve sağlık sorunlarıdır. Bu olgu ekonomi, sağlık, hukuk gibi pek çok bilim dalının el ele vererek çözebileceği bir durumdur. Özellikle iş sağlığı ve güvenliği uygulamalarında göz önüne alınması gerekir.

The Phenomenon of Presenteeism

The case in which an employee continues his/her work in spite of an illness is defined as presenteeism. This case is caused by many reasons which are related to the employee, work environment and working system. The results of presenteeism include not only a subtle loss of productivity but also safety and health problems for the employees. This case can be solved by the help of economy, medical science and jurisprudence. Especially applications of work health and safety should be considered.
