ABSENCE IN LABOUR MARKET
Advising of small adaptations, considerations and scheduled reviews to help employees manage their condition, are some of the ways Wyvern help with workplace wellbeing.
Employee absence can have visible and hidden consequences including:
- Pain and discomfort for the employee
- Possible financial loss for the employee
- Frequent/long term absence can be detrimental to continuous personal development, thereby limiting promotional opportunities
How Wyvern is helping organisations:
To be able to employ a diverse workforce, need to consider demographics within the workforce:
- Disabled People: They may have special needs for furniture, software, accessories and adaptations
- Older population: They may have ‘age’ related conditions where they may need additional support with furniture, accessories and even software
- Back pain: As we’ve seen one of biggest causes of absenteeism in UK. People need the right equipment and posture
- Acute and chronic pain can cause depression and mental illness: Employees need to help alleviate pain wherever possible
- Appropriate training: The right assessment, training and support can promote workplace health and wellbeing
