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.
Flu shots are the first line of defense. Their effectiveness, however, depends on how well matched the vaccine is to the strain responsible for the outbreak, which can be difficult to determine in advance. This year's flu virus is a particularly virulent strain, health officials say, for which the vaccine may be less effective.
Although they are recommended, you cannot rely solely on a flu shot to protect yourself from getting sick.

When Human Resources team leader Theresa Faulkner could no longer move freely around her office, it was clear that Roscoe's annual Christmas toy drive had been a success.
"I can't even get to my file cabinets," she said.
A mountain of baby dolls and a fleet of remote-control cars barred the way. There were Transformers, art supplies, an Easy-Bake Oven, and boxes rattling with Legos.
The toys were on their way to 30 neighborhood children between the ages of two and 14, as part of the "Angel Tree" program operated in Chicago by Celestial Ministries, in partnership with Prison Fellowship, to collect toys and gifts for the children of an incarcerated parent.text

When a multinational company tries you on for size and keeps coming back, you know you're doing something right.
At Roscoe, that means having a uniform rental program that our clients – big and small – can rely upon to provide high quality work uniforms kept in good condition and delivered on time, in the right quantity and with no surprise up-charges.
It means having a mat rental program that is reliable, cost-effective and worry free. It means being able to provide high-quality image apparel in a wide variety of products for promoting a client's brand.
When a relationship grows to include all of that – that's when we know that we've earned our Roscoe pride.text

You probably walk right over them without ever giving them a second thought. But did you know that the right floor mat at the entrance to your workplace can keep out more than 80% of the dirt, dust and moisture that typically finds its way in?
It's the easiest cleaning tip ever. But to do the job right, your floor mats have to be the right type and size and properly cleaned on a regular basis. Vacuuming only removes a small percentage of dirt at the surface of the mat or carpeting.text

At Roscoe, we know who we have to thank for 96 years of success in the work uniform rental business. But sometimes just saying "thank you" isn't enough.
That's why, for more than 15 years, we've been setting aside a day every month or so to show our customer appreciation with more than just words. We find that it means more when you can deliver a thank you with four giant Damenzo's pizzas.
That was the feeling we got recently at a Customer Appreciation Day and pizza party we hosted for one of our clients whose employees have been wearing our uniforms ever since firing their national supplier about six years ago. The client, which manufacturers gears for many different industries, has a voluntary uniform policy, so we knew we were doing something right when the number of employees choosing to rent our uniforms doubled – and then tripled.text
