Corporate Health & Wellbeing

Roundwood can offer a bespoke corporate health and well-being programme for your company.

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) which can range from a short episode of back pain to a complex, long term condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, are one off the main reasons for people being off work.  These conditions can also link to other mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression, which are associated with stress and are responsible for the most working days lost in the UK.  Psychosocial factors such as work place culture can in turn impact on the development of MSDs.

Recent research has shown that 40% of all UK sickness absence is due to work-related MSDs.  This equates to 9.5 million working days lost due to work-related MSDs and a further 9.9 million working days lost due to work-related stress.  Sickness absence from work currently costs the UK £14.3 billion.

Who benefits from out Corporate Health and Well-being Programme?

At Roundwood Health Clinic we understand that when your workforce is constantly travelling, in meetings, running hectic schedules or if they are under the physical strains manual handling tasks, they can easily develop aches and pains.
