‘Prevention is better than Cure’. The internal business internal has a significant impact on people’s health and well-being. This is mainly due to the fact that poor management of a workplace results in work related mishaps of absenteeism, poor motivation and sick leaves and thus leading to labor turnover. Not only is this seen as a high cost for a business but company image and reputation is at stake.
