Sick of the number of sick days taken by your team?

HealthSure are on a mission to banish duvet days from Manchester workplaces

Published on September 2nd 2008.

Sick of the number of sick days taken by your team?
On average around 8.4 days are lost per employee, per year. Sickness absence could be costing you as much as £659 per employee, per year*.

So how do you deal with high absence levels at work? You could pretend that it isn’t happening and just ignore it. Alternatively you could start looking after your people better, and watch them become more enthusiastic, productive, and committed.

If you've got a sickly team, or if you want an incentive that helps attract and keep talented people, a health cash plan from HealthSure is worth investigating.

From £1 per week per employee, they'll cover healthcare treatment such as dental and optical care including contact lenses, and are designed to boost wellbeing and deal with health problems before they affect work performance.

Blackpool International Airport recently introduced a health cash plan from HealthSure for their 130 staff. They wanted their people to be as relaxed and happy as those jetting off on holiday – and personnel manager Jackie Wild thinks it's working.

“The reaction so far has been excellent,” she says. “And I'm sure that in the long term, the plan will have a positive effect on all areas of our organisation including recruitment and retention, absenteeism and counselling.”

As well as money back on dental and optical care, staff get physiotherapy and complementary therapies such as acupuncture and osteopathy.

At HTC Plant Limited, which works in the construction trade, they're equally impressed.

Says MD Alex Lowe: “HealthSure tailored our healthcare package to include a HGV medical, and the associated chiropractic treatments have ensured that my employees are kept in great physical condition.”
