Background information on the topic "occupational health management"

Maintaining health is a factor in corporate success, because only healthy employees can use their working capacity and thus maintain their commitment to their jobs. Sustainable health programs are needed to counteract stress, burnout, addiction and mental illness. That's why occupational health management is an indispensable goal for HR managers and executives.

Especially in times of increased knowledge, fast communication and global markets, the demands on employees have increased. This puts employees under pressure, and in many workplaces the strain has also increased with the flood of information and knowledge exchange. Meeting these demands presents employees today with major challenges that not everyone can cope with. In order to keep employees healthy, productive and motivated, a balance must be created parallel to the increased demands. A company health management system can include offers for relaxation and sports, advice on addiction and other health issues, and suggestions for preventive medical measures.

Various options are conceivable, depending on the industry, the number of employees and the company's general conditions. Beyond the concrete offers in company health management, indirect strategies can also be implemented, e.g. in the form of cost absorption or as compensation for time off. It should be self-evident for those responsible in human resources as well as in management that occupational health management must go hand in hand with the wishes of the employees. Convincing employees to maintain their health is part of the program as a permanent measure. Against the backdrop of demographic change, it is essential to devote special care to one's own "human capital" and to develop long-term offerings that are conducive to health and well-being.
