Private healthcare is one of the benefits the Poles value the most. It is used by nearly 71% of employees to whom companies provide benefits. For 82% it is an important non-finan¬cial benefit, and employees are willing to pay extra for it (Sedlak&Sedlak 2021). However, taking care of employees' health does not start when they go to the doctor, but much earlier: in a healthy and safe workplace. It also depends on health-promoting habits and behaviours, i.e. prevention and health education.
Comprehensive private healthcare, including preventive care, brings measurable profits to employers: savings of up to PLN 1245 per employee per year*, as well as increased efficiency and job satisfaction.
Comprehensive private healthcare reduces employee absence, and thus limits losses due to illnesses of employees and their relatives as well as presenteeism. Thanks to preventive care, better access to medical examinations and consultations (including telemedicine), advanced forms of providing medical services and proper and prompt treatment, Medicover patients stay on sick leaves for half as long as the general population in Poland. The costs incurred by the employer due to employee absence resulting from the 7 most common employee health problems on a per-person basis are lower when the employees are covered with Medicover healthcare.
With our 28 years of experience working with patients, we are able to identify the main health issues for all groups of employees:
sales and service employees,
hybrid, remote and on-site employees.
This allows us to offer your company the right solutions to help keep your employees as healthy as possible.
Healthcare as a benefit can also be the company’s significant advantage and great asset during recruitment. An employer who provides employees with private healthcare is better perceived in the labour market. Its appeal is growing both among current employees, who appreciate this form of non-financial benefits, and among job applicants. As a result, staff turnover is reduced and the company recruits the best specialists in their fields.
There are also other gains. Employees who enjoy good health work more efficiently, with greater commitment and motivation. And this translates into the company's competitiveness and business performance.
In today's cost-cutting market, you can choose healthcare plans that fit both your needs and your budget. They provide basic benefits and do not impose an excessive financial burden on the company.
To make your healthcare package more attractive, you can choose add-ons: rehabilitation, psychological and dental ones. You can also differentiate the level of healthcare among various groups of employees - check what levels we offer.
Prevention and health-promoting education shape awareness of how to take care of health, both physical and mental, but most importantly, effectively form habits of healthy and safe functioning in and outside the workplace. Properly selected and carried out preventive campaigns bring actual gains to the employer:
they prevent the incidence of chronic and severe diseases,
they limit presenteeism,
they reduce stress at work,
they enable the integration of employees,
they build a relationship between subordinates and superiors,
they increase employee satisfaction,
they ensure that the working environment is organised safely.
To achieve these goals, it is necessary to treat prevention multidimensionally and organise a lot of activities in many areas: finding qualified vendors; working with experts and educators; tailoring solutions to employees' needs... All of this can prove to be quite a challenge for a company. That is why our offer is comprehensive and diverse: we provide substantive, communication and technical support. We carry out prevention campaigns using various methods. We recommend the following options:
Webinars on psychology, nutrition or physiotherapy, which can involve a large number of employees, including those working remotely, in dispersed branches of the company, or mobile ones
Advice on creating a safe workplace for employees, taking into account the latest Chief Sanitary Inspectorate and Ministry of Health guidelines
Audits and ergonomic workstation reviews, depending on the industry and the needs of the company in this regard. We conduct a remote ergonomic assessment, based on which we recommend solutions to improve safety and comfort at work
