Why building strength and resilience within the workplace is as important than ever

With the 3rd lockdown set to last until April, many businesses are looking at ways to maximise employee work capacity whilst managing employees’ strength and resilience. 

We know that maximising work capacity is tricky in these uncertain times. With many employees having to adapt to working from home and home school their children, these factors add to the other well-known factors such as illness, bereavement, stress and common mental health issues. 

The ramifications of staff absence for employers is vast. Not only is there a cost implication there are high administration costs, a lack of qualified staff to deal with any issues, having to recruit temporary workers to cover absent leave, and low morale within the workforce with present staff having to cover workloads. 

Our holistic approach to absence management will reduce the cost and impact of employee absence and disability and improve productivity to retain and motivate employees. 

At UKIM, we have a range of solutions that can support both the employer and employee with our holistic absence management service. We will: 

 

  • Provide you with a solid pathway in which you can maximise your employees work capacity 
  • Ensure you have a defined plan in place to ensure staff absences are at kept to a minimum
  • Refer a range of rehabilitation services such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and graduated counselling through psychology and psychiatry via our intelligent case management system. 
  • Simplify the entire process with our intelligent software to automate and manage complex workflows such as referral, pre-placement, health surveillance and management reports.

 

We aim to work with employers to create a culture of resilience within the workforce by providing resources to manage employees stress to build strength & stability and mitigate further issues.
