NETO, Alessandra Laudelino  e  GUIMARAES, Liliana Andolpho Magalhães. Presenteeism in a police corporation: prevalence and repercussions on workers' health. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.1, pp. 1367-1373. ISSN 1984-6657.

The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of presenteeism and its impact on the health of workers in a police corporation. Presenteeism is characterized by attendance at work, even though the worker feels sick or ill. To this end, a cross-sectional, exploratory-descriptive study was carried out, with a quantitative approach and convenience sampling. As research instruments, the Stanford Presenteeism Scale (SPS-6) and a socio-demographic and occupational questionnaire built especially for this study were used. As a result, the evaluation of presenteeism pointed out that 55.4% of the sample (p=0.2169) showed impairment in work performance by presenteeism, which is primarily associated with psychological factors (impaired ability to concentrate). It is concluded that the findings of this study will contribute to the understanding of presenteeism in this population and the subsequent implementation of preventive and health-promoting approaches.
