In a word, yes. And here’s one reason why, in the words of Kate Gulliver, Vice President & Global Head of Talent for home furnishings giant Wayfair, speaking about her experience with our company, 2020 On-site:
“If you think about the average office visit to go see a practitioner, it’s probably 2 to 3 hours. Let’s say I had 600 visiting 2020 this year--that’s probably 2 hours conservatively saved per employee. (The average time for a vision screening at 2020 onsite is 20 minutes.)
"That's roughly 1200 work hours that we as a company save. And that's not to mention the benefit that since our employees are actually seeing the optometrist they're getting updated prescriptions, and it's probably making it much easier and more comfortable for them to do their work."
Saved time. Increased productivity. Happier, healthier employees. And that’s just the beginning.
Another benefit of mobile on-site clinics? Affordability. While very large corporations can manage the expense of fully-staffed health clinics inside their facilities, they represent the tiniest fraction of companies that want to bring health care closer to their employees. Mobile clinics (which provide state-of-the-art services including dental, cardiac, vision, mammography, and more) can come directly to the front door of organizations, whether they have 100 or 10,000 employees on location.
In fact, mobile on-site clinics are so efficient that companies like American Express, Facebook, eBay, Boeing, Geico, and many more bring them to the workplace. It’s a win-win for employers--and their employees. The benefits include the ability to attract and retain talent, employee engagement, and, most importantly, lower health risks and associated costs.According to Mercer Consulting, 45% of employees with access to such services take advantage of them.
