The start of a new year generally inspires us to set new goals, resolutions, and pull out our checklist containing those routine tasks we conduct every year. For many of us, that checklist includes a wellness check or a physical health exam.
In a blog from Pomona Valley Health Centers, the writer states, “A generation ago, people used to see their doctor only when they were sick or dying. Today, preventative health care is becoming commonplace as people become more educated and empowered about their own health…
Regular check-ups can help find potential health issues before they become a problem. When you see your doctor regularly, they are able to detect health conditions or diseases early. Early detection gives you the best chance for getting the right treatment quickly, avoiding any complications. By getting the correct health services, screenings, and treatment you are taking important steps toward living a longer, healthier life.”
A business health check serves much the same purpose as a physical health check. Both are able to detect health conditions early and provide the best chance for getting the right treatment quickly to mitigate or decrease adverse complications. A business health check, like a physical health exam, should be conducted regularly, no less than annually. A health check ensures the business is tracking towards its goals. It delivers insight into the overall performance of your business, uncovers opportunities for improvements, measures employee health and the end-user experience, and assesses the organization’s culture, engagement and alignment. It’s an opportunity to make course corrections, mitigate or exploit risks or market changes or take advantage of new and innovative solutions.
Let’s associate the benefits of a physical health check with a health check of your business so you better comprehend the significance.
“A healthy business is as important as a healthy body; it will bring growth and prosperity to all its stakeholders.”
