The latest human resource efforts point at a trend where companies are increasingly providing healthcare solutions as part of regular employee benefits.
When one talks about employee benefits, the thoughts often lead to monetary bonuses, holiday and entertainment packages, or even lucrative gifts in kind. However, a recent trend in the world of human resource strategies and employee benefits point at preventive healthcare policies being the latest entrant to employee benefit programs worldwide
Healthcare policies have been a part of companies for years now, but they have mostly been constrained to medical insurance packages as part of the payroll, or based around healthcare camps and packages that would be initiated once in a year. These trends are being revised gradually, and have been leading to benefits like a preventive healthcare policy, where employees get a personalized strategy, along with someone to assist and maintain a healthcare calendar for regularising checkups.
With this, the employees themselves do not need to be concerned about healthcare strategies and scheduling checkups any longer. With the companies getting preventive healthcare on contract, employees get the benefit of having an assisted system, which would remind them regularly about their health status, ease the process of checkups by recommending the right doctor for the right cause, find the nearest hospital or clinic and fix appointments automatically based on a person’s work calendar, and simplify the overall process by adding digital payments to the fray.
“The body and mind are intrinsically linked. Stress and anxiety are the root of many illnesses, we need to listen to our minds to prevent them.” – Jayne Morris (HuffPost blogger and burnout expert)
This not only relieves an individual of their medical worries, but also ensures that no critical urgency arises. This, in turn, is leading to more satisfied employees who are steadily choosing healthcare as a tangible company benefit over the conventional choices. For instance, with OurHealthMate in the preventive healthcare space, one can simply automate the entire healthcare process via the website. With a thorough database of doctors available on site, it is not only easy for individuals, but even companies to have a reliable medical source and automate the entire process.
