Prevent sickness absences and extend careers

Reduce the costs of work left undone
The costs of work left undone consist of, for example, sickness absences and accident-related absences, disability pensions and occupational health costs. Preventive work ability management helps you prevent the costs of work left undone.
Build a productive and healthy work community
A work community with a high level of health and well-being is more productive on average. When employees feel that the employer looks after their well-being, they are more motivated to do their job well.
Terveystalo’s work ability management in practice
- Based on data collected through the Health Survey and the Terveystalo application, for example, we identify signals of reduced work ability and sends an alert to an occupational health physician or nurse.
- When a signal has been identified, the occupational health professional contacts the employee, assesses the situation and refers the employee to the appropriate specialist to address the issue and start the care pathway. My Health Plan is created together with the employee to help maintain their work ability and ability to function.
- Systems developed for corporate decision-makers accumulate data on the company’s overall situation and progress toward targets related to work ability.
- Our occupational health professionals and specialists support your company in preparing further plans and work ability measures to ensure the health of your employees in the future.
