ZocDoc, the app that lets you book doctor’s appointments, has discovered that 86% of Americans cancel or delay their check-ups because of work. To get people to take better care of themselves, they’re calling for Unsick Days – and no, they don’t mean skiving Ferris Bueller style.
The initiative tries to encourage employers to give out paid leave for any pre-emptive medical care. So far they have 11 companies on board, including Foursquare, Virgin Holidays, and Zola. Well, prevention is better than cure.
According to ZocDoc “Unsick Day will empower American workers to take care of important preventative care check-ups, which are often neglected due to workplace pressures and obligations”.
