Employee sickness is costing Australian businesses some 33 billion dollars each year.
A recent survey suggests that employee sickness is costing Australian businesses some 33 billion dollars each year in productivity and payroll costs.
Establishing an effective workplace health scheme with employee health check-ups is a great way to combat these losses. Workplace health care programmes can:
- Increase productivity
- Reduce added work stresses
- Ensure employee job satisfaction, morale, and security
Not only does staff absenteeism affect your business bottom line but the flow-on effects of added work stress and poor morale for other staff members can be detrimental to employee job satisfaction and overall staff morale.
A corporate healthcare programme will promote healthy lifestyle choices and raise awareness of health issues. Obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, depression, and smoking and alcohol abuse are all issues that may affect any one of your employees but an effective healthcare programme can make a real difference.
Frequently, there are predisposing factors that when identified early enough can allow preventative measures to be implemented. Annual check-ups and education are important tools that you can use to ensure your work force stays active, healthy and enthusiastic. It’s important that you, as a caring employer, take steps to model and encourage optimal healthcare choices –regular check-ups are an important part of that healthy lifestyle.
