What our clients say


The fact that we have an Occupational Health Provider that understands the variety and nature of the roles we have here, and that we have a good relationship with them, means that it helps them to understand who we are as an organisation and what we do to support our staff. To understand our culture, core values and ethos that we believe in here, is really important for them to be able to deliver the support they can to the member of staff that might be off work with long term or short term sickness. Its really important that its not a one size fits all and that OH Advisors need to understand the nature of someone’s role and what they do on a day to day basis, to be able provide recommendations when it comes to making adjustments in the workplace.
