Helen Luketic knows how staying home if you’re sick benefits both employer and employee. Yet Luketic, Manager of Human Resources metrics at BC Human Resources Management Association, still finds herself struggling with it.
“When it’s time for me to call in sick, I stop and say ‘I can’t call in sick. I have deadlines, and there is no one to back me up. I’m on contract.’ It’s always a bit of a battle for me to force myself to call in, and recognize that they can survive without me for one day.”
