DNA wants to invest in better healthcare

DNA and Aino Health Management have signed a cooperation agreement. In the first phase, Aino will examine the current status of health and work ability management at DNA. The project has already started, and the results of the audit will be reported to HR managers before the end of the year.

Aino Health Audit is a cost-effective way to identify the potential to reduce health-related costs and study the functionality of processes related to sickness absence management. The operations of the company’s healthcare partner network will also be examined in relation to the company’s needs. Aino Health Audit is an analysis that describes the effects related to employees’ health, assesses their financial significance and describes the existing operating methods. It provides a company-specific overview of the risks and cost-saving potential related to work ability. Based on the analysis, a practical action plan is prepared to implement changes in accordance with the organisation’s needs.

”DNA is highly committed to providing its employees with better, more effective occupational healthcare solutions and improving its work ability management. Clearly defined operating models help the company achieve better results, particularly in a hectic operating environment. We are now creating and developing such operating methods together. It has been absolutely amazing to work with DNA,” says Markku Pitkänen, COO at Aino.

“We are looking forward to seeing the results of the Aino Health Audit. We want to be among the best in work ability management, and the Aino Health Audit is a step in this direction,” says Riitta Vuoristo, HR Manager at DNA.
