Sickness currently costs the UK some £77bn a year in lost productivity.
The ultimate goal of the company is to achieve a healthier lifestyle for all staff, thus reducing absence from illness and boosting employee retention rate.
The company’s solutions include cloud-based Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to enhance the workplace and staff wellbeing, in terms of both physical and mental health.
Members of the team at GDS I-Healthcare Systems assess how healthy employees are in the first instance. Equally, internal work culture is assessed at the same time, so that any potential underlying issues between managers and their staff can be ironed out.
GDS I-Healthcare Systems partner, LeadTek, conducted a government funded project with AUO Optronics in Taiwan, co-working with local GPs, hospitals, helpline providers and the Government. Within three months of monitoring and corrective measure with the employees of these organisations, their risk of cardiovascular diseases reduced by 14%. The employees provided positive feedback regarding their self-management of their physical and mental health. The employer’s analysis after project implementation showed overall work efficiency significantly increased. Employees reported positive feedback regarding being aware of and in control of their own health.
