Fit for work service up and running

02 January 2015

The new Fit for Work service went live on 16 December 2014.

The new service can be accessed by separate websites for England and Wales and for

Scotland . Presumably the Northern Irish access will be confirmed later.

Fit for Work is intended to help employers to better understand and manage sickness absence within the business. Expert and impartial advice is delivered by a team of occupational health professionals.

The service claims that by supporting staff attendance, preventing sickness absence and helping absent employees return to work quicker, you can reduce business costs and increase productivity.
