10 benefits of Employer Health Screenings

Studies suggest that when a company takes an active measure to improve employees health, it builds employee goodwill because they know their company cares about their well-being. Employee health screenings offer a low-cost, high-effective way to enlist employees in improving their health. These types of screenings should be done at least once a year. A biometric health screening consists of a baseline assessment of your employees’ health status regarding blood pressure, blood glucose, and cholesterol levels.

So why should an employer consider offering onsite health screenings? Check out these ten benefits:

  1. Establish a baseline of the organization health status through aggregate reports
  2. Identify the type of programs and interventions that has the highest impact.
  3. Detect the condition even when the person is asymptomatic.
  4. Identity the chronic diseases at an early stage
  5. Identify the urgent need for medical care required, if any.
  6. Showcase your organization’s commitment to its employee’s welfare
  7. Save time and increase productivity as your employees don’t need to deal with health issues.
  8. Help your employees more educated and engaged in their health.
  9. Build employee loyalty and increase employee retention
  10. Save on health insurance costs by deigning programs to delay or avoid developing chronic conditions.

While employee health check-up screenings are not designed to replace a clinical exam and blood studies carried out by a health professional, they help create the urgent need to visit a health professional if there is an abnormality observed in screenings. By investing the time and money to arrange health check-ups for employees, organizations set an example by playing an active role in keeping employees healthy and productive.
