Press Release (ePRNews.com) - STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Oct 18, 2016 - Would it surprise you that only 3 out of 10 Swiss workers rate themselves as “fit and motivated”?
An increasing number of employees feel stressed, drained, sick or on the verge of a work burnout. They’re no longer performing at their best and their happiness, health, family and relationships all take a hit.
Simple measures lead to more productive employees
Basler Insurance has been busy testing solutions that can help their clients break the negative trend of long term illnesses.
They’re now launching ‘Baloise Care’. It’s a new program aimed at their clients to raise awareness around Workplace Health.
They offer solutions to reduce health related cost, increase productivity and work preventively so their clients can keep their workforce motivated.
The insurer is convinced their clients can save millions with simple measures as it leads to more productive employees. The Celpax device is one of the products included.
Continuous workplace improvement
The insurance employees used the green and red feedback buttons themselves to better understand how easy it is to self-reflect on your workdays.
“What makes me press the green button?” And it gets conversations started using questions like “How can we have less red days?”.
The online data shows the mood trends so companies can detect early signs of employee morale going down, to take measures before burnouts, sick leaves, etc.
A Mood KPI (Key Performance Indicator), helps companies continuously improve working conditions together, and can be cross checked with other KPI’s like productivity, abseentism, safety, etc.
“It’s a win-win-win situation. It will benefit the employees, the company and also we as an insurer who has to pay less in claims. The claim reduction is not in the center, because it will automatically happen”, says Patrick Wirth, Head of Product Management Accident / Health.
“We also benefited from the test results and it helped us establish what customers really need,” says Veronika Bischof, Head of Product Development and Marketing.
“We believe in offering a lean range of measures that deliver a big leverage on health and productivity”, continues Britta Dürr-Hausheer, one of the key people behind the Health Management program.
A great workplace is everyone’s job
At Celpax we’re not surprised that only 3 out 10 of the 4.9 million employed in Switzerland rate themselves as fit and motivated.
We’re working hard to get companies to create a better and more positive work environment, helping people live longer, healthier lives.

Let’s get more people to wake up in the morning and feel good about going to work!
