Invest in the Long-Term Health of Your Staff, with Corporate Workplace Health Assessments from Onsite Health
Employees who are happy and healthy are the most productive, the most engaged, the most innovative and the least likely to leave their jobs. Employees who are unhealthy are less likely to reach their full potential and are more likely to miss days of work or leave their jobs entirely. To fight productivity losses and costly employee turnover, therefore, it’s important to invest in the long-term health and well-being of your staff. Corporate health checks are among the best ways to make that investment.
What to Expect from Workplace Health Checks—and Where to Get Them in Auckland
If you’re looking for workplace health checks in Auckland, look no further than Onsite Health. Since 1999, we’ve been providing vital health services to businesses throughout the Auckland area. Our services include both workplace flu vaccinations and later ‘MedChecks.’ Both can do wonders to keep your workplace healthier and more productive.
Our MedChecks are 15-minute individual appointments between a registered nurse and each of your staff members. During these checks, your employees will receive a basic medical check-up that includes tests and records for pulse, blood pressure, height, weight, BMI (body mass index), total cholesterol, and glucose. The nurse the interprets this information for each employee, letting them know what the different readings might mean.
In many cases, MedChecks come back completely normal for most employees. However, the fact is that many people in New Zealand have health issues of which they are unaware. For instance, roughly 30 percent of New Zealanders have high blood pressure but don’t know about it, which means they are oblivious to their heightened risk of cardiovascular disease. Diabetes is another disease that heightens risk for heart attack or stroke—and another condition that is seriously under-diagnosed in New Zealand.
The problem, in many cases, is that the people who have these conditions have not been to the doctor for a long time. As a result, they don’t know that anything is wrong—either until they have a check-up or until something happens that forces a revelation.
Needless to say, it’s better to detect risk ahead of time. By offering workplace health assessments for your employees, you can provide the gift of foresight. Our MedChecks are quick and can be conducted at your office for all employees. Designed to spot the most common risk factors for cardiovascular disease and diabetes, these checks can save lives by identifying early warning signs and encouraging your employees to seek more in-depth medical care and advice.
