Employee health screenings or ‘lifestyle assessments’ can help identify potential risk factors for future poor health, as well as pinpoint problem areas to focus on and improve, for optimum wellbeing. Where a number of staff need regular health screening an account can be set up which may include discounts.
Key features and benefits:
- Screenings can help detect disease or risk factors early
- An invaluable preventative healthcare measure
- Can help reduce ‘sick day’ absenteeism
- Unhealthy lifestyles can be identified before too much physical damage is done
What you need to consider:
Health screenings usually involve a number of tests such as; blood pressure readings, cholesterol tests and a lifestyle analysis. The lifestyle assessment analyses the individual’s alcohol intake, smoking habits, BMI and physical activity - in order to gain an overview of their current health status. Referrals can then be made to the individual’s own GP for onward management, if required.
