The key components of an Executive Health Program to positively impact your company
With recruitment and training costs of new executives estimated to be 2.5 times the executive wage and 2 times the manager’s wage, ensuring executives with health risks are under appropriate care and ongoing treatment reduces the likelihood of long term absenteeism and the associated costs to companies.
Other key drivers include;
- The attraction, engagement and retention of key staff
- The facilitation of lifestyle improvements through targeted interventions
- Enhancing the productivity of the workforce and reducing absenteeism costs.
- Reducing workers compensation and salary continuance premiums.
