Boost business the healthy way

Andy Wilkins of health cash plan provider, Gwent Hospitals Contributory Fund says, "Offering a healthcare benefit to your entire workforce, rather than just senior management, can also increase staff motivation. However, businesses often think of private medical insurance when considering a health benefit for employees, this can be expensive. There are more affordable alternatives available on the market, such as health cash plans. A health cash plan allows your employees to claim cash back for routine medical procedures, including trips to the dentist and opticians, areas which currently are not fully covered by the NHS and can often be more valuable to the employee concerned.”

He adds, “Most health cash plans will also offer a helpline which staff can call for free if they have any problems they would feel more comfortable talking to a professional about. So, at a time when budgets are tight and stress levels are rising, it is more important than ever before to make sure your staff are happy and healthy. Investing in your employees’ health does not need to be costly, and it can make them feel more valued and appreciated. A motivated workforce is more productive and will work harder to achieve the best possible results for your business.”
