A health business is offering a free support package to estate agencies with between three and 100 employees, to help staff as they return from furlough.
Medigold Health is offering 100 free subscriptions to its specialist occupational health package, which allows access to doctors and nurses both remotely and via its specialist clinics for employees with health issues, including those arising from COVID-19, and those who are self-isolating or shielding.
The package also provides health screening for new starters, including access to clinical support where any issues are identified. There is also a range of wellbeing materials developed by qualified psychologists, and access to a dedicated mental health and wellbeing app.
“As we face renewed challenges from the devastating coronavirus pandemic, it has never been more important to focus on the health and wellbeing of our employees” explains Alex Goldsmith, Medigold Health chief executive (pictured above).
“We have spent the last 12 months researching, developing, and testing our revolutionary occupational health subscription service for SMEs which was unveiled for the first time this summer. At this critical time in the UK’s recovery, we are delighted to be able to offer this service free of charge to help some small businesses to ‘Build Back Better’.”
Medigold Health - which has 2,000 existing clients employing some two million individuals - says that despite the rise in awareness of, and commitment to, employee health and wellbeing, eight out of 10 SMEs currently have no support strategy in place.
Only three per cent of people working in SMEs have access to comprehensive occupational health advice.
Medigold has over 200 occupational health clinicians running more than 100 clinics across the UK and operates 26 mobile screening units. You can access the offer here and applications must be received by Friday November 20.
“Workplace health challenges have changed dramatically over the course of 2020, and we understand the pressure that small businesses are encountering as they adapt to a new way of working. We know that looking after our employees well forges loyalty and commitment and helps them to do their best work. Not only is this the right thing to do, but it also makes good business sense” concludes Goldsmith.
