Healthy Workplaces

UICC and Bupa are working together to inspire the private and public sectors to work together, and form new partnerships focusing on workplace initiatives which are designed to achieve a long-term change. Because by doing this, we have a real opportunity to drastically reduce the number of new cancer cases, and significantly increase the number of people who can survive it.

CANCER – IT’S EVERYONE’S BUSINESS

With the world’s governments setting ambitious targets to reduce the human and economic cost of cancer, it is now imperative that the energy and expertise of everyone with a part to play, from governments to NGOs and businesses, are harnessed to make a lasting impact.   

But why is combating cancer an important priority for business? Because cancer deprives businesses of valuable employees, meaning productivity will be lower, sickness absence higher, and healthcare costs higher still. The fact is that promoting good health in and through the workplace is not just good for people, but good for business. Informing employees about the steps they can take that will reduce their risk of cancer and improve their long-term health will help ensure companies have a fit and productive workforce, which will allow them to compete more effectively.
