What is health prevention in companies?

Health prevention comprises any measure in a company that helps protect employees against illness and accidents. The focus here in on maintaining and promoting physical and mental health at work. This prevents absences relating to health, motivation or accident, meaning that your team stays happy, healthy, and productive.

Why is health prevention so important?

The health of employees is a key success factor for companies:

  • health promotion measures indicate to your staff that you care about their health, thus promoting a productive working environment. This boosts your team's happiness.
  • Healthy and motivated employees are demonstrably more productive, are less prone to absenteeism and are loyal to their employer for longer. This reduces absenteeism due to illness, lost production  and staff turnover.  
  • Lower absenteeism reduces direct and indirect absence costs and also saves on administrative work. This strengthens your company's profitability and makes you more competitive. On average, every franc invested in corporate health management is paid back three times over.

Case study: health prevention in companies

  1. Task: After an illness-related absence, Ms. B, the head of a planning office, would like to support her employees with a health-promoting offer. She has little time in her daily work routine and turns to AXA for assistance.  
  2. Aim: The responsible WeCare advisor and Ms. B determine the current situation and identify potential improvements. Staff in the planning office sit down for a long time in their daily work routine, leading to repeated back problems. The life situation of members of staff varies a great deal, ranging from young career starters to single fathers working part-time. It is therefore important for Ms. B to find an offer that can easily be integrated into the daily work schedule and is also suitable for all staff.
  3. Planning measures: The decision involves a hybrid approach: in on-site seminars, the team learns more about health, stress and exercise and is given practical exercises on how to deal with stressful situations. All employees are also given access to a health app that motivates them to integrate health habits into the daily routine. 
  4. Implementation: Ms. B informs her staff in advance about the planned health measures. Her WeCare advisor takes over the rest of the organization for her. After the first half-day seminar, all staff receive access to the health app. The second half-day seminar is held eight weeks later.  
  5. Evaluation: After completing all measures, a completion conversation is held between Ms. B and her WeCare advisor. The employee feedback on the seminars and usage rate of the app clearly show that the majority of staff are very keen on the health offer and were able to adopt one to two healthy habits.


Support and frequently asked questions

  • What does prevention in a company cost?

    The question about the cost of occupational health prevention cannot be answered in general terms. Should an individual measure be implemented or does your company want to have continuous support for employee health? Do you need new software for efficient absence management or should new structures for preventing staff absences be implemented? The cost of occupational health promotion depends heavily on your company's individual circumstances. A personal consultation helps to assess suitable measures and set a cost framework. Feel free to contact our WeCare advisors

    It's worth pointing out that companies that invest in their employees' health promotion ultimately save costs. According to studies, on average every franc invested in corporate health management is paid back three times over.
