How Investing in Occupational Health Services can lead to greater ROI

The business benefits of using an Occupational Health provider

As a business owner, you constantly seek ways to improve your bottom line and stay ahead of the competition. One area that often goes unnoticed, but holds the potential for significant benefits, is investing in occupational health services for your employees. At UKIM Occupational Health & Wellbeing, we understand the importance of prioritising employee health and wellbeing, and we're here to support you in unlocking the full potential of a healthier, more productive workforce.

Introducing UKIM Occupational Health & Wellbeing

Keeping your employees healthy and happy is essential for maintaining their productivity, reducing absenteeism, and improving staff morale. That's where we come in our own with our comprehensive range of Occupational Health services designed to meet the unique needs of businesses across the UK. 

CSR is key to our agenda

We recognise that our operations can have an impact within the local community in the northeast – including Durham, Newcastle & Sunderland, and the wider environment. Therefore through consultation with stakeholders, we have developed a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Policy that reflects our commitment to continuous improvement and our goal to become Net Zero by 2030.
Being a Gold IIP, we have built a culture based on five simple core values - quality, respect, customer focus, team spirit and innovation - which shows in everything we do.
Knowledge is power

Our team of experienced clinicians and therapists provide evidence-based solutions tailored to your business needs with a suite of treatments, including Case Management, Physiotherapy, Counselling, and Absence Management, to address any physical and mental health concerns. 
By investing in the health and safety of employees, companies are not only fulfilling their duty of care to their workforce but also securing a better future for their business. With the increasing awareness and importance placed on employee well-being, implementing an occupational health program is vital to running a successful business.
Providing your employees access to health and well-being resources can improve overall health, fewer sick days, and increase productivity. It can also help promote a positive company culture, showing your staff that you value their well-being and providing a better work-life balance.
