On-site healthcare facilities have gained significant traction in recent years. This strategic move isn't just about providing medical services—it's a game-changer that promotes a healthier workforce, reduces costs, and elevates productivity. In this blog post, we'll explore how on-site health care is reshaping how modern companies approach employee well-being and why partnering with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) can make all the difference.
The Shift Towards On-Site Health Care
The traditional approach of outsourcing employee health services is being challenged by a more direct and proactive method—bringing the doctor's office to the workplace. Companies of all sizes recognize the benefits of on-site healthcare facilities. According to a survey conducted by the National Association of Worksite Health Centers, 91% of employees who utilized on-site clinics reported being satisfied with the care they received. These facilities offer essential primary care services, immunizations, and preventive measures, ensuring employees can access critical health services without leaving their workplace.
The Financial Advantage
By cutting down on insurance claims and reducing the time employees spend away from work for medical appointments, businesses are not only saving costs but also boosting productivity. According to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), companies with on-site healthcare facilities reported significantly decreased healthcare-related expenses, making it a crucial reason many businesses are adopting this model.
The Impact on Employee Well-being
Access to immediate medical attention, regular health check-ups, and preventive care measures create a healthier workforce. When employees feel cared for, valued, and beneficial, their morale and job satisfaction soar. In turn, this leads to higher productivity, reduced absenteeism, and increased overall engagement within the workplace.
Businesses collaborating with a PEO can seamlessly integrate on-site healthcare initiatives into their employee benefits package to enhance employee benefits and foster a healthier, happier, and more productive workforce.
