Is presenteism the contrary of absenteism? Not exactly. Attending work when ill characterizes the presenteism as defined by the author Gary Johns, PhD, management Professor at the Concordia University of  Montreal. This behavior does not always enhance the productivity of a company. In the long-term it may have a negative health effects and is associated with loss of productivity says Kevin Dew, professor of sociology.  Presenteism is higher in the sectors of health and education.
