This year’s Movember was a particularly successful campaign, with huge support from workplaces nationwide, as people grew moustaches and beards in support of “Movember”, the campaign for men’s health.

The benefits for businesses were well promoted by the organisation and, whilst many employers were supportive, it’s the employees who were really behind the success this year.

Employee Benefits magazine reflects on how staff throughout the UK embraced the campaign.  However, they also highlight some concerns with respect to the provision of cancer support within the workplace, with cancer claims more than doubled in the last decade according to Unum and the importance of communication with staff in  return-to-work planning.

Particular focus on men’s health issues include Prostate Cancer, Testicular Cancer and Mental Health issues.
Bluecrest Health Screening offers screening tests in relation to all of these issues with our new 2014 screening packages.
