Thought Leadership 2018 #2 – The Next Generation in Workplace Health


Ask yourself this: what does the future of health look like in your workplace? Is there really a place for psychometric screening and genetic testing? What are the benefits? And what are the drivers – safety, health or prevention of injuries and illness?

Join us as we take an in-depth look into these topics.

Pre employment screening, periodic medicals and health surveillance are fast becoming a must for organisations globally. At the same time, understanding the health and wellbeing of your employees is also vital when creating a healthy workforce.

We know screening a prospective employee during the recruitment process is an important part of identifying whether or not that person can properly fulfill the inherent requirements of the role they are applying for. But what about their psychological health? Psychometric testing is now being used by companies to further explore a candidate’s outlook on important factors in the workplace such as psychological safety, emotional intelligence and resilience.

This all begs the question: does understanding human behaviour become a necessity in making the right recruitment decisions?

Today, many companies are offering genetic screening to their workers, and employees are jumping at the opportunity to assess their hereditary risks in order to fight any conditions, diseases or illnesses that they are potentially susceptible to early on.

We all know that keeping your employees fit, safe and healthy is a number one priority – but would you go as far as to have them genetically screened in order to do so?

With this in mind, join us as we discuss what genetic screening and psychometric testing can be used for, how it fits into the workplace and the benefits they bring to both the organisation and employee.
