Why do we need to provide health assessments for employees?
Irrespective of the size of your organisation, there is a health assessment that’s right for your workforce. Providing a health screening programme to staff is a fantastic way to demonstrate a sincere interest in the health of employees, and has a far reaching positive impact to not only the employee, but also the organisation as a whole.
Providing even a basic health check to staff can be the first opportunity the individual has had to really understand their health. In fact, health screening provides ones of the strongest motivations for people to consider their current lifestyle and make meaningful changes.
What does a health assessment include?
There a range of different levels and associated costs, but these kinds of assessments are much more comprehensive than you might be able to source from your GP. The range of tests can include;

Which employees should we make the health assessment programme available to?
