Advanced health for employees is quickly becoming an essential part of running an organization. The pandemic created a focus on health and safety in the workplace. As we move to a post-pandemic world, many organizations are faced with a need to look at long term employee health as a part of their operations. A tight labor market with a shortage of workers has put employers in a position where they need to focus on retaining employees while finding innovative ways to attract new talent. This is happening at the same time that individual health needs are catching up after 2 years of pandemic management.
Today, companies are increasingly seeking find ways to mitigate what is expected to be a decade of demanding employee needs, rising healthcare costs and a need for accurate risk management. This all comes at high cost to organizations in lost productivity and ever- increasing health and liability insurance fees. Industry experts and top investors are taking notice of global opportunity for employer provided health services. Larry Fink, CEO of Blackrock recently discussed on CNBC that worker health is “the new world of work…companies not adapting do so at their own peril”.*
