Healthy contract wins for NE company
A North East company, which counts Nifco, Cordell Group and RPS among its clients, has secured a healthy amount of new contracts.
Billingham-based Business Health Partners has won contracts with Formica Group and US-based technology company Compound Photonics, for which it will provide all aspects of employment well-being ranging from lung function testing to advising on employee absence, policy development and risk assessment.
Having experienced a growing client list, plans are in place for further expansion over the next 12 months.
The company's director Liz Short said its success was, in part, due to the growth of the manufacturing sector in the North East.
"We work with a broad range of clients, but a key sector for us is manufacturing, and we have seen a real upturn in the volume of work we are undertaking in this field," said Short.
"Across the region, some 60,000 work in manufacturing and engineering, so it is a huge market for us and one in which there is a real need for specialist support.
"We are a mobile business, so we work from our clients’ office or facility to deliver our support, and our background of working across a range of sectors, including manufacturing, and in large organisations, means that we are really well placed to be brought into a workplace, and to deliver a great level of service to that business."
Business Health works with a range of clients, some of which simply wish to meet their minimum legal requirements and others that introduce measures to ensure their company looks after its employees.
Its work can help companies "reduce sickness absence, improve employee performance and reduce litigation and prosecution costs through legislative compliance".
