The aim of Corporate Health Management (or CHM) is to maintain and promote the health of employees in a company. It combines all measures in a company that can be employed to prevent absences due to accident, motivation or illness. Structures and processes are designed so that employees can carry out their daily work in a health-promoting way and thus avoid occupational accidents and illnesses.
It's worth it, both for staff and the company: Corporate Health Management increases your team's satisfaction levels and reduces the expense of health-related absences. On average, every franc invested in CHM is returned three times.
With WeCare, AXA has developed an offer that is dedicated entirely to employee health in your company. WeCare offers you personal support with issues connected with your employees’ health. You know that your employees’ health is always in good hands.
Corporate Health Management is worth it for companies both for ethical and financial reasons:
WeCare is an exclusive offer for AXA customers with accident, daily sickness benefits insurance and/or occupational benefits solution. With WeCare, your company has access to a large selection of preventive services for improving employee health and can access the professional support of Care and Case Management for potential long-term absences.
According to statistics, around 60 percent of absences in Swiss companies are due to a medical necessity. Around 40 percent of absenteeism cases are motivation-related. Corporate Health Management helps in both instances: through targeted measures, your employees’ motivation can be improved and some medically indicated absences reduced. This means that Corporate Health Management has a positive impact on around half of all illness-related absences.
There isn't any real difference; they both belong together:
Corporate health management is a management task and includes controlling and integrating all the company's processes with the aim of maintaining and promoting employee health, motivation, and wellbeing.
Corporate health promotion (CHP) includes all the measures that directly or indirectly influence behavior and circumstances with a view to promoting health.
All in all, corporate health management saves on costs, as every franc you invest pays you back three times over, and thanks to the systematic approach, not only are costs saved but also time.
WeCare has a broad offering of free and fee-based offers in the employee health sector. Initial analysis with different tools, AXA Care Management and many other measures are available to you for free with your AXA personal insurance.

Mental stress at work is widespread among employees and is increasing all the time: according to the Job Stress Index of Health Promotion, Switzerland, 28.2% of respondents are suffering from increased stress at work. Almost one third (30.3%) are emotionally exhausted and therefore at greater risk of burnout.
For companies, this means risks and expenditure that can affect their economic efficiency and competitiveness. Work-related stress costs Swiss companies around CHF 6.5 billion every year. With corporate health promotion and targeted prevention measures, companies can counteract psychosocial stresses in the workplace.
