Presenteeism refers to attending work while ill. Being harmful to personal health of employees and bringing extra costs to organization, presenteeism in the workplace has got attention of organization managers and management and psychology researchers. By reviewing and summarizing previous studies, this paper summarized the concepts and measures of presenteeism in the workplace. We also delineated the antecedents of presenteeism in the workplace from individual, work-related, organizational and group perspectives, and the consequences from individual health-related, individual work-related, and organizational outcomes. Finally, we concluded with an agenda for future research on presenteeism in the workplace.
