Many companies choose to offer their employees free executive health screenings in hopes of increasing productivity, boosting employee satisfaction, and improving morale and loyalty. However, not many employees make use of this perk which is a shame. 

The truth is, the corporate world brings immense stress and may sometimes inevitably result in a decline in health. While nobody wishes to be diagnosed with diseases, early detection can save lives. 

Hence, going for an executive health screening is important not just to keep track of your health status, but because it has many other benefits too. 

Read on to find out more about what they are.

Benefits of An Executive Health Screening 

1. Provides peace of mind

Going for a health screening in Singapore provides you with peace of mind as you will be able to ensure you do not have any underlying medical conditions you were not aware of. Basic tests can flag up risk factors to be mindful of, while in-depth screenings are usually recommended if you have a family history of medical conditions. 

Learning more about your own health condition is also a great opportunity for you to reflect on your lifestyle habits and working conditions to see if any of them is taking a toll on your body. 

2. Safe space to address health concerns

A health screening is also a safe space for you to address any health concerns with a medical professional. Clarify any doubts you have and ask for advice as these could go a long way in helping you to avoid potential health issues in the future, which will closely relate to your work performance as well. 

Understanding more about your risk factors and what you should look out for is the first step to improving your well-being so you can always put your best foot forward at work.

3. Reduces health risks and medical costs

Regular health screenings mean timely detection of health hazards; largely minimising any further risks and reducing personal medical costs at the same time too. 

This is especially helpful if you do not have comprehensive health insurance that can cover the cost of treatments. The earlier a condition is detected, the quicker you can treat it without spending as much money. 

4. Prevents complications

Early detection will not just help you to save on medical costs, but also prevent further complications and save lives. For instance, more than 90% of colorectal cancers can be successfully treated if detected early. 

A health screening can detect early signs of cancer or pre-cancerous conditions before symptoms even appear. There are also various diseases that only show obvious symptoms once they progress to an advanced stage. Hence, it is important to go for regular health screenings to prevent, diagnose and seek treatments as soon as possible, should there be any abnormalities detected
