effecting POSITIVE CHANGE

Employers recognise that attracting and keeping the right calibre of staff is very important to the success of the business, and that the health of those staff is a priority.

They are discovering that it is not just the long term sickness that is impacting negativity on the company balance sheet. Add absenteeism, presenteeism, staff turnover costs, including recruitment, training and loss of productivity and the threat of premium increases for employee liability insurance.

Encouraging employees to address health issues is more than a matter of corporate altruism. There is an increasing trend for employees to seek compensation for injury and illness. A company’s liability is greatly reduced or even eliminated by introducing employee support systems.

The Compass service provides a constructive, cohesive menu of solutions which pinpoints root causes to workforce health issues and then proactively and effectively addresses these. Our menu of interventions provide the essential proof that improvements need to be made or are being made.

Our Founders bring a wealth of experience in the health sector, specifically within corporate health and wellbeing consultancy, health interventions and education.
