Health-Wellness

Companies trying to increase productivity should offer their employees more wellness programs. Workers who ate healthier meals and exercised on a regular basis had better job performance and lower absenteeism, research from the Health Enhancement Research Organization (HERO), Brigham Young University and the Center for Health Research at Healthways shows. Educating employees about health, nutrition and fitness empowers them to explore healthier lifestyle and set their own health goals. Armed with facts about their eating habits, sleep patterns and workouts, employees can make smart decisions that help them maintain their health. 

This directly contributes to fewer doctor visits. It's plain and simple. All of the normal issues that unhealthy people suffer dramatically reduce when a clean diet and routine exercise are added to the mix. Lowering the health risk of your employee population can improve their mental and physical wellbeing. It can also support your cost containment strategies and help to reduce the overall cost of your group medical insurance. Just having a wellness program could drop your premiums, but having employees that actually use it is even better!

We are here to help you to review your employee health risk, develop a wellness strategy and help your business to foster a holistic approach to supporting healthier professionals. We match you with insurers who are leading the way in innovative wellness solutions. If you are in charge of making sure that your people are kept happy and healthy,  reach out to our Corporate Solutions team today and our award-winning brokerage team can help this happen for you.

Why develop a Wellness Program?

Designing and managing an employee wellness program is an important step in improving the health and productivity of your employees and potentially improving the overall cost of your group medical insurance. Wellness programs can benefit employers by:

  • Lowering health care costs.
  • Reducing absenteeism.
  • Achieving higher employee productivity.
  • Reducing workers' compensation and disability-related costs.
  • Reducing injuries.
  • Improving employee morale and loyalty.

Because of the ever-increasing costs of health insurance and the importance of employee health, employers should consider implementing a well-thought-out wellness program that benefits both the employee's health and the employer's bottom line.

What are the technology trends in Health and Well-being?

Another fast-evolving value add is the use of tech in providing a more seamless and engaged user experience for employees. When it comes to providing the best employee benefits in Singapore, we are continually finding new ways to work with insurers and wellness start-ups who share our values of keeping the customer at the heart of what we do. Here are some of the things that we can help you offer your employees:

  • Health screenings, onsite or selected clinics, facilitated through online portals. If you have less than 200 employees in Singapore, talk to us about potential of running free chronic disease screenings for your workforce.
  • New solutions leveraging wearable data to provide employers with comprehensive data analytics for real-time engagement, wellness strategy development and post-program ROI reporting.
  • Telemedicine apps that provide an online doctors consultation using highly skilled medical staff. This eliminates the need to physically see a doctor to get prescriptions and medical certificates. The script and MC will be sent straight to your email. You can also have medications delivered to the office or home.
  • Your health records in one place including your vaccination certificates. This is an added bonus living in Singapore where your travel vaccinations need to be updated regularly.
  • Mental Wellbeing is a huge topic and there are new apps in the market that are designed specifically to guide users through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This has been introduced to help combat the rise in anxiety among working professionals.

Call our Corporate Solutions team today to find out more about some of the cool stuff that’s happening with tech and wellness and how that will benefit your teams here in Singapore.

What is included in the health and well-being benefits of health insurance policies in Singapore?

Let’s have a closer look at what Health and Wellness modules might entail when it comes to tailoring it into your Singapore based international insurance plan:

  • Health Screenings
  • Vaccinations
  • Mental Wellbeing support
  • Visits to a registered dietician
  • Health Risk Assessments
  • Second medical opinions services

Mental Wellbeing issues are now firmly in the sight of the C-suite. Whilst work is often good for mental health, a negative working environment can lead to physical and mental health problems. Depression and anxiety have a significant economic impact; the estimated cost to the global economy is US$ 1 trillion per year in lost productivity.

There are many effective actions that organizations can take to promote mental health in the workplace; such actions may also benefit productivity. Mental health interventions should be delivered as part of an integrated health and well-being strategy that covers prevention, early identification, support and rehabilitation.

If any of these areas are of interest to you or your people, get in touch for a discussion.
