What is corporate Healthcare and why companies do it for their employees ?

What is corporate Healthcare and why companies do it for their employees I recently read a lot online and did my own research about the corporate health options provided by the companies worldwide. I am a part of the corporate health team for a software company. Earlier, we were a part of the HR team itself when the net team size was small.Now we have around 1400 employees and I have been assigned to design health benefits for our employees. I am thinking of the following to be done but I will need support from some of you who would have already done this in the past: 1. I am increasing health coverage for the parents of the employees. 2. Making sure we have in-house lectures to handle health issues like Ergonomics, Dental Health, fitness etc. The lecturer is generally a local doctor. 3. Outsourcing all our healthcareneeds to a single company.This company will be the project management company that will get all other players together. 4. Health check up to be done in-house like cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar. 5. Doctor on Phone call service.that's how i got to come to this site. Biut I am not sure how our employees in korea will be able to chat as they do not speak english well. we may have to find local doctors. 6.We are thinking to Tai chi or Yoga or Reiki . Any suggestions ? Will be good to collaborate with fellow group members about this.

These are a few of the things that we do at HeathcareMagic. You can try out the websites like WellSphere , Well Resources where you can get good idea about the corporate programs.Discount coupons, pharmacy delivery, nurse service at home and health cards can also be one area that can be explored. You can also look at some of the companies like People Health, which are into corporate health.If you try to do everything on your own, then you may be reinventing the wheel and in the process make many mistaes and increase the cost and time of rollout.

 "Health is wealth" but for the corporates  "Health is productivity" so now a days it is very inportant task for the corporates that maintaining the good health among the workers. ofter giving lot of training to an employee, imagine if he fall in sick freequently what is the fate of the company ? so for the productivity of the company thay have to take care of employees health periadically.

Which country are you planning to implement this from ?If it is India, your planning is well and good. If it is US then you can find many companies doing this corporate wellness management and you will not need to plan it internally in your company. Iam am aware of one such program going on at Rambus in India where the plan includes Yoga, Health check-up of employees at the office, Doctor on phone and Live Chat and appointment fixing with doctors and hospitals for the employees.
