You probably need to convince yourself (and your Finance Director) of the benefits of health screening. No matter what their position, each employee plays a valuable part in the on-going success of your organisation. It makes good commercial sense to protect each individual and the organisation as a whole, by helping to ensure that, wherever possible, the workforce remain healthy and fit to perform at maximum efficiency.
No organisation would neglect to maintain its investment in property, machinery or vehicles. It makes just as much sense to maintain an equally valuable asset – its workforce.
People are not always aware when their bodies are not performing as they should. Minor ailments, left unchecked, may develop and so prevent employees performing at their best. This is where health screening is so valuable.
When your staff are healthy, the business benefits are proven to be great. Your employee’s well-being and morale is improved and your company’s reputation as a caring employer is enhanced. Absenteeism and long-term sickness decline and you have good reason to seek lower group risk insurance premiums.
