KNOW YOUR NUMBERS CAMPAIGNS

Some of your employees like so many South Africans are not in control of their health and that is likely affecting your bottom line negatively.

Unscrupulous providers, medical schemes and overcrowded public clinics attribute to confusion resulting in negative lifestyles and health management. Those that end up horizontally ill attribute to sky rocketing ABSENTEEISM whilst many of those that are at work are vertically ill and not optimally productive (also referred to as PRESENTEEISM).

Take control of your people’s health by giving them access to health screening and effective referral to appropriate providers.

The Wellnomix Know your numbers campaigns are essentially an individual consultation for each participating employee with a professional Nurse and a sanitized report with aggregate results and recommendations for future intervention if required is shared with the employer at the end of the campaign.

The Nurse consultation includes analysis; screening; Interpretation of results & Referral if required

The Organisational Health Risk Report includes:

  • Aggregate results
  • Key areas of concern
  • Recommendations

Whilst sick leave is driven by various factors such as health, stress and unhealthy lifestyle, sick leave abuse is rapidly increasing costing employers in productivity and profits.
