Prevention is better than cure

What is the Single Most Important Asset of any Organization?

"PEOPLE." The single most important asset of any organization is its people. And like any other asset it has to be protected. To this end, more and more companies are recognizing the value of adopting a strategic healthcare policy. Many are already sponsoring medical expenses programs. Not just for senior management, but for all levels of staff as well as immediate family members.

What is the best health-care policy?

There is more to a strategic healthcare policy than medical expenses. Should procedures be widened to include health screening? or to assess the risk of sickness and stress in the workplace? or to manage such risks?

Why have a check Up?

It is proven that the early identification and management of risk factors reduce the likelihood of developing serious life threatening diseases. The main purpose of health or medical check-ups is to break down known risk factors of potential illness, create or improve self-awareness of health and fitness and provide referral to the adequate treatment when necessary.
