Productivity or Presenteeism?
Presenteeism is the notion that any individual who, despite suffering fatigue, ill-health and being less able to function efficiently, continues to go to the workplace, spends long hours there, yet is significantly less productive than their colleagues.
Research is uncovering a chain of causation between childhood / teenage visual disruptions and the symptoms suffered by a significant number of display screen users.
Essentially poor eye-sight from childhood is being made worse from too much screen time.
It’s being made worse by the lack of accessible standard display screen equipment – such as display screen optimising for the individual, which could help alleviate the harms being done
Presenteeism is a growing issue that’s seen in both education and the workplace, and not surprisingly among many that have to use screens for many hours of the day.
