When Dennis Publishing appointed Screenetics to provide on-site salary sacrifice health screening to its 300 staff for the first time, it saw take-up exceed 60%, rising to 75% for employees under the age of 40. The average age of staff at the company is 32.
Alison Hunter, HR director at Dennis Publishing, says: “The younger generation have never been bothered about their health, the same way they have never been bothered about pension schemes and private medical insurance.
“We have worked hard to communicate the value of these benefits to them. People are actively making changes to their lifestyles after receiving their test results.”
The 60-minute session of tests includes: an analysis of cholesterol, diabetes, iron levels, cardiac risk assessment, a prostate blood test for men, a full body composition test, and a bone density scan. Results can be accessed and tracked confidentially online.
