Abstract: Aim: To determine personal and organisational factors associated with work performance and illness outcomes during presenteeism in a cohort of nurses.
Background: Presenteeism is prevalent in nursing populations. It is known to be associated with impaired health and performance loss. Knowledge about the factors associated with presenteeism may help foster better health and performance in this group.
Methods: A survey (N = 270) was conducted in a population of nurses working with older adults. Hierarchical multiple regression was used to explore factors associated with performance loss and illness outcomes during presenteeism.
Results: Work performance and illness outcomes were often reported as poor during presenteeism. Less negative illness perceptions and work engagement were associated with better work performance and illness outcomes. Older age and manager support were also associated with better work performance. Non-organisational causes of illness were associated with better illness outcomes.
Conclusion: Performance levels and illness outcomes during presenteeism are associated with a combination of illness-related, individual, attitudinal and organisational factors.
Implications for nursing management: Fostering engagement, support, good relationships and a hazard-free environment may improve performance and health during presenteeism.
