Hail damage? Storm damage?
Healthy and motivated employees are an important success factor for companies. Those who feel appreciated and fit are more productive and are less likely to be off work. This saves resources and ultimately also costs. Good reasons for promoting a healthy corporate culture - and for getting started with WeCare and your entire team.
The aim of Corporate Health Management (or CHM) is to maintain and promote the health of employees in a company. Occupational health and safety measures focus on the mental and physical wellbeing of your employees and help prevent occupational accidents and illnesses. This pays off both from an ethical and business perspective: Corporate Health Management boosts happiness in your team, helps productivity and willingness to perform in your company and contributes to lowering the cost of health-related absences. On average, every franc you invest in CHM pays you back three times over.

If there is a risk of an employee being unfit for work for an extended period, quick action is called for. The faster action is taken, the higher the success rate for recovery and reintegrating the employee, thus averting and long-term absences and the related costs. As part of WeCare, AXA Care Management’s aim is to quickly support companies and those affected in the event of incapacity for work, identify the causes of absence and optimize the situation over the long term. This way, neither you nor your employees have to deal with or take responsibility for labor legislation issues, communication obstacles or neutral assessment of the employee’s incapacity for work.

Companies with high employee satisfaction levels are demonstrably more productive, receive better reviews from customers, record lower absenteeism and benefit from their good image. Those who invest in their team’s happiness will not only be able to find it easier to attract new talent, but also to retain them in the company over the long term.
The right choice of (motivation) measures is crucial to promoting loyalty and employee retention. The WeCare experts help you identify and implement such measures so that your employees feel recognized, understood and appreciated. You will thus improve employee motivation and the working environment in your company by up to 20 percent.
On average, Swiss employees take seven days of sick leave per year. Added to this are long-term absences which account for around 41 percent of days absent in Swiss companies. Absenteeism means mainly costs and hassle for employers. If employees are absent, others have to cover for them or carry out more work or, in the event of long-term absences, new employees have to be hired.
The good news is that absenteeism can be reduced by 12 - 36 percent through targeted health promotion. The WeCare experts help you exploit this potential and minimize the number of short and long-term absences in your company. This not only reduces your operating and staff costs over the long term, but also increases your whole team’s satisfaction levels.
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 and some medically indicated absences can be reduced. This means that Corporate Health Management has a positive impact on around half of all illness-related absences. This helps both employees and companies alike:
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.
