The negative development in public health is a massive challenge for society, businesses and individuals. Every 6th employee feels burned-out. A shocking number. Even more employees don’t thrive at work. They lose the ability to stay focused. It affects sick leave, but also lowers the overall efficiency of the business.
Counting employee sick-days is no longer a reliable measurement of the actual health condition of the business. And relying on a health insurance to maintain a healthy and efficient staff is at best reactive. - Click to read the Deloitte reporte
It's a downward spiral for employees, businesses and shareholders.
Overweight, inactive lifestyles and stress among employees have a major impact on the bottom-line. Lack of data is the biggest, single barrier for understanding the true potential of addressing the health challenge and to justify proactive health efforts and investments. Provided with relevant and timely data on the health condition of employees business can take co-ownership of the health challenge and drive substantial efficiency gains.
Absence due to sickness is very visible and tangible for companies and directly affects bottom-line. Surprisingly, the invisible costs of mental absence are up to three times higher than the cost of psychical absence.
A huge potential can be unlocked by addressing the health challenge. This amounts to a cost per employee up to €1,750 per year*. Not only for the employees who are ill, but for ALL employees.
