MAKING LIFE BETTER BY PROVIDING LEADING EMPLOYEE HEALTH SERVICES TO SOUTH AFRICA’S WORK FORCE

It’s a simple business truth that your company’s most valuable assets walk out of your building every evening. Buildings and machinery don’t make companies, people do. And so it simply makes good business sense to look after those people. When your people are healthy, your company is healthy.

Life Occupational Health and Careways make up the two integrated components of

Life Employee Health Solutions which together provide a unique, integrated approach that saves your company money and increases your productivity – making a meaningful, measurable difference.

Part of the Life Healthcare Group, we contribute to their vision of making life better by providing leading employee health services to South Africa’s work force.
