Are you looking to help your employees health and wellbeing?

Ageing can have a significant impact on work in several ways:

  1. Physical Changes: As we age, physical changes such as decreased strength, mobility, and flexibility may occur, which can make it harder to perform certain job tasks. For example, older workers may have difficulty lifting heavy objects, standing for long periods, or performing repetitive motions.

  2. Cognitive Changes: Ageing can also affect cognitive function, including memory, attention, and decision-making. This can make it harder to learn new tasks or adapt to changes in the workplace.

  3. Health Issues: Older workers may also be more susceptible to health issues such as chronic conditions, which can impact their ability to work. This can result in increased absenteeism and decreased productivity.

  4. Experience and Expertise: On the other hand, older workers may bring a wealth of experience and expertise to the workplace, including problem-solving skills, industry knowledge, and strong work ethic.

  5. Retirement: Many older workers may also be nearing retirement age, which can impact workforce planning and succession planning for companies.

Occupational health physiotherapy

Occupational health physiotherapy can help save money for a corporate company in several ways:

  1. Reducing absenteeism: By addressing and preventing work-related injuries and illnesses, occupational health physiotherapy can help reduce absenteeism. This means employees are less likely to miss work due to health issues, resulting in less lost productivity and decreased costs associated with hiring and training temporary replacements.

  2. Preventing workplace injuries: Occupational health physiotherapy can help identify and address ergonomic risks in the workplace, reducing the likelihood of workplace injuries. By preventing workplace injuries, companies can avoid the costs associated with worker's compensation claims, medical expenses, and lost productivity.

  3. Early intervention: Early intervention is a key component of occupational health physiotherapy. By addressing minor injuries and illnesses before they become more severe, companies can avoid the costs associated with more extensive treatment and longer recovery times.

  4. Improved productivity: By addressing the root causes of workplace injuries and illnesses, occupational health physiotherapy can help employees perform their jobs more efficiently and effectively. This can lead to increased productivity and ultimately, increased profits for the company.

  5. Employee satisfaction and retention: By providing access to occupational health physiotherapy services, companies can demonstrate their commitment to employee health and well-being. This can improve employee satisfaction and retention, reducing the costs associated with recruiting and training new employees.

Overall, occupational health physiotherapy can help companies save money by reducing absenteeism, preventing workplace injuries, providing early intervention, improving productivity, and enhancing employee satisfaction and retention.
