Getting your workforce in healthy, working order

Healthy workers are more motivated to stay in work, recover from sickness quicker and are at less risk of long-term illness.

As many businesses and individuals approach almost a year of working from home, no one could argue that Covid-19 hasn’t created a global shift in the importance of health in the workplace.

Even before the on-going pandemic, it was becoming increasingly recognised that a healthy workforce is beneficial to employers too. By creating a positive, safe and healthy environment for employees, you can increase morale, improve your employees’ work-life balance and, in turn, positively impact your business.

Healthy workers are more motivated to stay in work, recover from sickness quicker and are at less risk of long-term illness. In addition, organisations stand to make substantial cost savings by promoting health in the workplace and reducing sickness absence. By simply promoting good health among staff and colleagues, within a positive and safe working environment, you could reduce employee turnover and recruitment costs, while boosting productivity.

However, developing a health agenda for work isn’t a one size fits all solution. At International SOS, we offer data-driven solutions that address a broad scope of health challenges, opportunities and trends to support your organisation at every stage of developing and delivering an efficient health and wellness programme that will, in turn, benefit your employees and business.

With a broad range of experience, working across sectors, geographies and varying health risks, our global network of consultants can provide tailored consulting services that are strategically aligned to your organisation or sector’s health agenda. This may include additional focus on handling stress for high octane jobs, developing healthy habits and attitudes to alcohol for organisations with younger workforces or implementing healthy activities and exercises to complete for those in traditionally sedentary office roles.

By working closely with one of our medical advisors, equipped with the relevant industry and regulatory knowledge bespoke to you, you can efficiently improve your efficiency and organisational resilience.

International SOS’ health advisors work with you and your stakeholders using our proven methodology to help review, assess and advise on your organisation’s health needs. Our consultants carry out an in-depth analysis to assess the health risks at your sites and workplace and its impact to your operations.

Policies, standards and guides will assist you in managing health concerns to maintain business continuity. This usually includes:

•        Reviewing your health policy and standards

•        Development and implementation of employee health and wellbeing programmes

•        Assessing and advising on health threat preparedness and planning

•        Reviewing of workplace health risks, malaria risks, hygiene and sanitation risks, community health risks and medical supply services

International SOS’ global medical advisors are on hand to add capacity and expertise to your organisation’s health procedures.

Whether your need is for specialist site assessment, health and wellbeing programme development, or risk mitigation planning, our medical advisors add the needed capability and support, to keep your workforce in healthy, working order.
