The Significance of Pre-Employment Health Checkup for Employees
Companies conduct pre-employment health check-ups to assess potential health risks and existing diseases in their employees. An employee’s productivity and performance may be adversely affected by unhealthy habits and lack of discipline.
Employee health issues include hypertension, fatigue, heart disease, and kidney problems. Shockingly, cardiovascular diseases alone account for 30% of deaths in India.
Conducting pre-employment health check-ups brings several benefits:
- Ensures workplace safety
- Establishes health records for future reference
- Assesses productivity and efficiency
- Controls medical reimbursement costs
- Demonstrates commitment to employee well-being.
- Prevention of work-related injuries and illnesses.
- Implementation of corporate health check-ups saves time and money
The typical components of a pre-employment health check-up include:
- Complete Medical & Physical Examination
