The flu season this year is being characterized as more intense than any since the 2009 swine flu pandemic, with more people seeking medical help for flu-like symptoms and a high rate of hospitalization among those who fall ill.

Here's what you can do about it at your company to protect your employees from catching the flu, at the sink and beyond.
