Pinnacle Prepares Its Employees & Customers for the 2009 Flu Season

ATLANTA, September 8, 2009 – To prepare for flu season, Pinnacle Promotions has already begun to equip its employees and clientele with the necessary tools to stay healthy and virus-free.

The H1N1 virus, or Swine Flu, is expected to infect between 30 and 50% of the American population this fall and winter, and though the virus is highly contagious, there are plenty of preventive measures that can better prepare you and those around you to fend off this unpleasant, and potentially deadly, illness.

Pinnacle’s owners Mitch and Dave Weintraub consider the health and happiness of their employees to be of utmost importance, and thus have implemented a number of policies and programs to reinforce this core value. Pinnacle employees, as well as their families, have the option of receiving a flu shot or flu mist during work hours, additional hand sanitizing dispensers have been placed in communal areas, and educational information related to the flu has been made readily available. Pinnacle Promotions is taking a proactive stance on keeping H1N1 out of its office, and advises its customers to do the same.

The CDC has released statements advising civilians to take the typical pre-emptive steps to minimize the spread of germs during flu season, such as washing hands or using antibacterial hand sanitizer often, especially after touching your face; covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when sneezing; and staying informed about the latest developments related to flu vaccinations and new strains of virus that may arise.

Dave Weintraub, Chief Operating Officer and Owner of Pinnacle Promotions, says, "With all of the fear surrounding the flu in general this year we're taking precautions to protect our staff as much as possible.  Our goal is to make it easy for our entire staff to prevent the illness in the office and to control any outbreaks if people here do get sick."

Through content posted on the official Pinnacle Promotions blog, YouTube channel, and Twitter accounts, the company has emphasized a variety of promotional products that can help control the spread of germs. Pinnacle Promotions offers a wide array of promotional hand sanitizers, tissues and wipes that can be customized with your brand’s name and logo. By distributing custom imprinted healthcare accessories, you will be showing your valued customers and employees that your company cares about their well-being. They will be grateful that you have provided useful promotional products to nip flu germs in the bud.
