Kimberly-Clark holds Clean Hands Campaign to fight flu
To help office workers fight the flu, Roswell, Ga.-based Kimberly-Clark Professional is launching “The Clean Hands Campaign Against Flu.” The program includes a “Flu Fighters Contest,” flu prevention-related educational materials and a Web site, www.kcprofessional.com/cleanhands.
“Our goal is to spread the word about flu prevention, so office workers will be less likely to pass germs to their co-workers,” said Andy Clement, director of the washroom business for Kimberly-Clark Professional. “Basic common-sense measures, such as frequent hand washing, and covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue can go a long way toward preventing the spread of flu germs.”
The centerpiece of the campaign is a “Flu Fighters Contest,” which asks office workers and managers to share their best workplace flu-fighting tips. At the end of the contest, one office building will receive up to $25,000 worth of hygienic restroom products, including touchless bath tissue, skincare and hand towel dispensers for its restrooms, and a year’s supply of products for the touchless dispensers. In addition, 10 office workers will receive a year’s supply of Kleenex brand facial tissue and Kimcare brand instant hand sanitizer. The contest is being promoted on the Kimberly-Clark Professional site as well as online ads for the NBC-TV series “The Office.”
The Clean Hands Campaign Web site, www.kcprofessional.com/cleanhands, also offers flu-fighting materials, such as workplace wellness guides and information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other sources.
