Benefits of Pre Employment Checkup
To Maintain Safety at Workplace
The new candidate should be free from medical conditions that could result in harming other people (colleagues or customers), especially in health and safety-sensitive jobs such as driving, piloting, working in automation, etc.
Health Record Compilation
A Pre-employment health checkup establishes baseline health-related data against which the future health status of an employee can be compared. It identifies existing medical conditions, including lifestyle and contagious diseases which could get adversely affected by occupational exposure.
Ascertain Productivity and Efficiency
These tests establish that the new employee is free from medical conditions which can affect his productivity post employed. Companies understand the importance of a healthy employee as his health is going to be directly proportional to his productivity and efficacy towards work.
Cost to Company for Medical Reimbursement
Considering that medical treatment is getting costlier by the day, employee health is becoming a major concern for companies. Several companies provide full or partial coverage for the medical expense to their employees. An employee who suffers from a long term illness which may require frequent hospitalisation and absenteeism from work may cost the employer a lot of money. Companies want to assess this before hiring the candidate.
