24-7 Response Expands with Occupational Health recruitment services.
24-7 Response, leading providers of Recruitment Services today announced the launch of its Occupational Health Division being headed by business manager Naureen Khan who has extensive occupational health recruitment experience.
There is a niche and relatively small market of health and wellbeing professionals within the UK. Increasingly 24-7 Response is seeing demand for occupational health roles within corporate environments in addition to those you would expect in more traditional roles within the health service. Naureen believes this is as a result of companies running leaner workforces, she explained, “Certainly many companies have down-sized over the past two years. Recruiting an occupational health specialist enables companies to provide preventative care such as weight, blood pressure and stress management. They can help people back to work after illness and provide important and advice and support so that they are able to cope with ongoing and potentially life threatening conditions such as cancer giving employees the opportunity to maintain their working life whilst having treatment.’
Managing sickness absence is an important aspect of business efficiency as the reasons for absence are wide-ranging, a skilled occupational health professional improves the working lives of staff and contributes to the productivity of a company.
