Our Approach to Corporate Health

Our Complete Wellbeing philosophy underpins our unique approach to corporate health and wellbeing. We examine your health as a whole rather than looking at physical and mental health separately. When having an assessment with one of our health practitioners, you will discuss your health and wellbeing profile holistically. The assessment includes, for example, how your emotional wellbeing, sleep schedule, exercise habits and underlying health conditions all interact. Subsequently, this enables our team to give you a customised health plan that will improve your overall wellbeing.

We approach health and wellbeing as a partnership. We collaborate with you to identify health risks, create an individualised action plan and follow up with ongoing care. At every point in your wellbeing journey, you will have the support of the Ford Health team.
