Having a successful occupational health program in place reduces a company’s productivity losses when an injury or sickness occurs. Healthy employees are more motivated and have:
• Lower medical costs
• Reduced absenteeism
• Lower turnover rates
Sickness absence in Britain costs the economy an estimated £15 billion per year. This includes lost productivity/output, time spent on sickness absence management and healthcare. The majority of healthcare is reactive, costing both the employee, the employer and the state exponentially more to treat a condition.
As employee health costs continue to rise, employers are beginning to realise that the most cost-effective and impactful way to combat these high costs is to implement a comprehensive population health management (PHM) program – identifying risks, changing employee behavior, and aggressively managing the health of the employee population.
