What are Health Assessments?

All Health Assessments we arrange are carried out by trained practitioners and includes a personalised health report and lifestyle advice. Employees have the opportunity to speak with the doctor about their results which could also mean they get early diagnosis, faster treatment and improve their awareness of their overall health.

Better knowledge for employees regarding their health, means they can be more proactive in managing their health.

What are the benefits?

Health Assessments are a valuable employee benefit. From basic screenings to in-depth health assessments, you can choose who benefits and to what level. Whether an employee has a specific health concern or you want to help your workforce improve their overall health, a health assessment is a great way to boost awareness and promote healthier lifestyles within the workplace.
