What Employers Gain From a Workplace Health Check
Workplace health checks are a core part of our offering at We Are Wellbeing. It gives employers insight into the wellbeing and status of their workforce without being intrusive or invasive. Looking for feedback on our processes, we put some questions to our clients, hoping to learn more about why they requested our services. We believe this information would also be useful for employers potentially looking to implement workplace health checks at their own premises.
We discuss with our client, Kenny Waste Management, what they hoped to achieve from workplace health checks, and how they found the experience using our services.
For further insight, we also offer an example of the information client’s receive, including blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels. We also offer some feedback directly from employees on their experience of the health check and if they would be open to making changes to improve their wellbeing.
To understand how the process transpires, from start to finish, read our information on De-Mystifying Health Checks.

The health check is completely voluntary and offers employees an opportunity to review their own health and also express their thoughts to their employer on workplace wellbeing. Equally the health check offers employers an unintrusive health report they wouldn’t otherwise get on their employees.
