Why health management
More and more Company take care of their employees and can not do without healthy and efficient colleagues. The reason for this is first and foremost the demographic change - ie the aging of society in Germany. Especially in recent years, occupational health management has developed enormously in commercial enterprises as well as in public services.
For this purpose, more and more own positions are created, such as “The company health manager”, which deals with health promotion in the company. Psychologists with a focus on industrial and organizational psychology, but also health scientists or sports scientists are primarily employed for this purpose.
Tasks of a health manager
This is very gratifying, because there have usually been more business scientists and lawyers in the HR departments in the past. But more and more "lateral entrants" with additional training in occupational health promotion are in demand here.
When it comes to the tasks and activities of a health manager, what is most important is a planned, structured and goal-oriented approach in the sense of a management process. They have the demanding task of making health tangible and “manageable” and to inspire employees for personal and professional health promotion. That is not always easy.
The six phases of occupational health management
An occupational health management is therefore divided into the following phases:
- Strategic objective
- Status Quo - analysis and evaluation of the actual state
- Derivation of concrete operational objectives
- Choosing health-promoting measures
- Evaluation / evaluation of the impact of the measures and comparison with the objective
- additional taxes
What does a health manager have to consider?
For a timely approach, health managers must ask the following questions, among others:
- Why does my company want to introduce a BGM system?
- Where do we currently stand with employee health?
- Where do we have health and health care?
- In which "health fields" do we want / need to be active?
- What are the appropriate measures to achieve these specific objectives?
- How can we make the success of these measures visible / measurable?
- How do we motivate our employees for more health care?
As you can see, the task area of a health manager is very diverse and versatile. You will find out in the second part of the article what exact requirements are to be met.
