'Healthy Employees are Happy Employees'
We can assist in providing added value to health and wellness programs for your employees by conducting convenient onsite pathology collection
sessions to fulfill referral requests from doctors and specialists and help avoid disruption to workplace productivity and reduce absenteeism.
Our services support fringe benefit tax incentives for small to large organisations.
We offer a professional, confidential and reliable mobile pathology collection service which removes the inconvenience of visiting collection
centres during business hours.
'Can tax breaks for employers improve the health and productivity of the workforce?
'By 2030, over 50% of the UK working age population will have at least one long-term health condition. The implications for productivity, competitiveness,
welfare spending and social inclusion are considerable. Employers need to play a full part in promoting health & wellbeing in the workforce, by investing in
practices and interventions which prevent work-related ill-health, promoting positive lifestyle choices and supporting job retention and return to work.
However, only a minority of employers offer benefits which address this problem because low-skilled & low-paid employees (where the highest risk lies)
are not covered by health insurance schemes. These employees are also less likely than other groups to take part in workplace health promotion initiatives.
Therefore, the big challenge is to encourage more employers to do more for more employees.'
