Company offers employees unsick days so they can visit the doctor-公司提供「無病」假讓員工看醫生






A survey conducted by Zocdoc, a U.S. medical appointment scheduling service, showed that 60 percent of workers feel uncomfortable leaving work for check-ups.




After that, Zocdoc itself decided to offer its employees "unsick" days so they can make use of the time to receive health examination. They hope its workers to take care of their health.




Firms including Foursquare, Greatist and Virgin Hotels decided to offer employees unsick days in 2017. Higher-ups said they were willing to take up the gauntlet, promising to lead by example.




"We often neglect our health when we’re well. But with seven in 10 US deaths related to preventable diseases, empowering Americans to utilize preventive care services is critical," said Dr. Georges Benjamin, Executive Director of the American Public Health Association.




The majority of adults in the US receive health insurance from their employers as well as preventative care services under the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. However, three quarters of adults do not use these benefits.
