From larger businesses to SMEs, firms across the country have a role to play in creating a healthier, more productive workforce, through the prioritisation of employee health. Working days lost to ill-health cost the UK economy £300bn a year. Business playing a greater role in supporting workforce health can reduce this by 10-20%, saving £60bn per year. But that’s not all. Prioritising employee health also supports recruitment, job satisfaction and retention - all key to establishing a competitive advantage.
