Are you familiar with Presenteeism? It occurs when someone is “at work” but not really contributing significantly (sitting in the seat but not getting much done). Here’s the abstract to a study identifying some of the key factors tied to high (which is bad) presenteeism: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22856386
When you dig in further to the study, you’ll learn that presenteeism is significantly increased in smokers (28%), which likely isn’t a surprise. However, it’s intriguing to learn that eating an unhealthy diet increased presenteeism even more (66%) and lack of exercise drove a 50% increase in presenteeism!
