The effect of presenteeism in the workplace has not been sufficiently addressed in most organizations. Efforts have been on ensuring that employees are not absent from work irrespective of sickness, stress, family issues or even the working conditions of the organization, without taking cognizance of the effects of bemg present at work at all cost. Based on the foregoing, this work examines the concept of presenteeism and its effects in the workplace with a view to suggesting ways in which it can be managed. This research is qualitative in nature and relies solely on secondary sources of data collection, and concludes that employees can be present but absent (not productively engaged), which has adverse effects in the workplace, and recommends that empirical studies be carried out to ascertain the actual effects of workplace presenteeism
