Absenteeism, Incapacity and Disability Management

We provide comprehensive absenteeism, incapacity and disability management.

Many South African companies have an overall absenteeism rate which is significantly above the expected rate of absenteeism. Unplanned and extended employee absence requires careful investigation, evaluation and management, not only to reduce its considerable cost to business but also to ensure that the correct support is provided and accommodations or recommendations made.

Excessive alcohol use and substance abuse can be a huge hindrance on employee productivity. We provide companies with support in addressing substance misuse, abuse or dependence.

We empower employers with comprehensive feedback and reporting. PLUS we bring the vibe with activities, giveaways and competitions to encourage participation.

Executive Wellness

A range of flexible options are available to assess and optimise the health of your executives.

Universal provides businesses with executive medicals to identify and address healthcare challenges faced by senior managers and executives. These medicals can be conducted nationally and can be anything from 2 hours to half a day depending on the option selected. Individual and anonymised company reporting is provided after the consultations. Convenience is key and medicals are arranged according to the availability of the executives.

Health and Wellness Challenges

Health and wellness team-based challenges custom-created for companies to engage staff and encourage participation.

Health and Wellness Challenges are fun ways to promote health and wellness in your organisation. These events can be structured as one-day events or run over a period of up to three months. Challenges are specially adapted to fit the company environment and culture to ensure that the best results are achieved. The challenges create a positive climate of fun and camaraderie and help employees to adopt or maintain a healthy way of living. The aim is to encourage and create an engaged and high performing workforce.

Universal Corporate Wellness assists your company by planning and managing the challenge from start to finish and we tailor-make the event to suit your specific needs and goals.

Challenges are run virtually and onsite and can range from fun runs, fitness and weight loss challenges, wellness amazing races and survivor challenges.
