Case study: Personal Activities not Related to Work and Presenteeism


Presenteeism is the behavior of going to work despite having a physical or a psychological problem and appears as relatively new concept in the management literature; even among professionals this concept is somewhat unknown. Since 2006, Aristides Ferreira has been studying and developing the concept through different research projects in diverse economic sectors. Specifically, most of the studies have been conducted with samples of nurses and teachers. These studies have been published in important Impact Factor journals and have brought important practical implications for managers and academicians. Even more importantly was the capacity to introduce this (apparently) new concept in the Portuguese-speaking countries, namely in Brazil and Portugal, which has brought interesting international collaborations that helped to extend the findings beyond the Portuguese boundaries.
