Are Corporate Healthcare Programmes a Fashion Trend or a Basic Need?
6 June 2019

Over the past years corporate healthcare programmes have become instrumental in attracting talented employees, increasing productivity and staff involvement, and optimizing investment in human resources. While it is not possible to quantify the full benefits of such schemes, many countries have taken special measures to encourage employers to organize and finance these programmes. The established approach to understanding corporate programmes has so far focused on the physical aspect of health, limiting itself to the screening of key indicators and the provision of qualified medical care. A new trend in this area is the wellbeing philosophy for creating a special culture by promoting a healthy lifestyle and health awareness among employees. Employers have become concerned about psychological health, depression, and professional burnout suffered by employees, which are the main factors reducing productivity and causing an up to 50 percent increase in annual staff turnover. What government support measures are needed to expand corporate healthcare programmes? Could tax benefits be an impetus to introducing wellness programmes? What criteria should be considered for improving the efficiency of wellness programmes? What should employees, companies, and the government expect from the mass roll-out of corporate wellness programmes?
