Have you considered a New Year Employee Wellbeing MOT?

Workplace health support can boost your business productivity and reduce staff absence.


Are your employees happy at work?

Is your workforce productive? Are you experiencing Absenteeism, or even Presenteeism?

If you're not sure on the answers to the above, then maybe you should consider introducing health improvement support in your workplace by implementing a structured Employee Wellbeing strategy. It's proven that having happy, healthy employees will increase productivity and reduce absences through illness, which will improve employee engagement and resilience.

At UKIM, our core aim is to provide a structured employee health improvement support service by delivering measurable Employee Wellbeing Improvement projects that focus on productivity and return on investment.

Our Employee Wellbeing Assessments are tailored to ensure that every aspect of your employee’s health and well-being is managed. Our bespoke biopsychosocial model looks at various physical, psychological and sociological factors that affect Presenteeism, Absenteeism, sickness, absence and injury. This ensures that we can understand each person individually and provide an individual assessment based on their needs.

In our biopsychosocial model, we look at a range of factors that can affect an employee’s performance, such as:

  • Physical Factors - Illnesses, injury, fitness
  • Psychological Factors - Resilience, beliefs, emotions
  • Sociological Factors - Family life, traumas, stress

What does an Employee Wellbeing Assessment cover?

This tailored service will be unique to your business requirements, but we would recommend the following:

Check Stress Levels
Consultation with your employees can identify their individual work and domestic stressors; we can then discuss techniques to help them manage stressors and improve emotional wellbeing.

Check Posture and Movement Health
Our Health and Wellbeing Specialists will perform a functional movement assessment evaluating mobility, stability and strength to proactively change employees’ work, home and exercise routines, optimising movement and reducing the risk of future pain and injury.

Check Cardiovascular Health
Regular exercise and healthy eating are significant factors in combating high blood pressure and high cholesterol, which can contribute to heart disease. Our tests will help reveal any concerns and provide results.

Check Diet and Nutrition
Our Health and Wellbeing Specialists can assess nutritional habits and provide individual and targeted advice to support improved nutrition.

Check Diabetes
Early signs of diabetes can often be overlooked, leading to further health complications. Our clinicians can assess for diabetes risk factors and advise if further medical investigations are indicated. Advice can be given on lifestyle changes, including exercise and nutrition, to reduce the risks of diabetic complications.

Check Cholesterol 
Our blood tests will assess cholesterol levels, whilst our clinicians will work with employees to help lower the risk of future cardiovascular disease by implementing healthier behaviours. 

Lung Function Test
A simple test can measure the function of the lungs in comparison to normal ranges taking into account age, ethnicity, sex and height. This can help identify the early signs of lung disease and support the employee to seek early medical intervention, and also be a motivating factor to improve overall physical health.

Vision Testing
Our Keystone Vision Screener measures a person’s ability to see objects at three distances. This is important as eye strain, and fatigue can result in individuals struggling to view a screen. 

Audiometry is a test which measures hearing ability via short tones which vary in pitch and intensity. Employees will be asked to press a response button, and the sounds will be adjusted accordingly. Results will be presented based on hearing ability across a range of frequencies, assessing if the hearing is below normal levels and comparing any untoward deterioration, which would indicate intervention.

Blood Cholesterol
We will analyse blood cholesterol and how they compare to acceptable levels. We will then assess what action needs to be taken regarding diet or referral to a GP for further investigation. 

Cardiovascular Risk
We will assess the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD): heart attack, angina, stroke (brain haemorrhage or clot), or blood circulation. For example, an absolute CVD risk of 8% means an 8% chance of having heart trouble, stroke or blood circulation problems during the next ten years. An individual with an absolute CVD risk of 10% or more should consult their GP as advice; further investigation or treatment may be necessary.
