The Impact of iron deficiency on work productivity
Employees suffering from iron deficiency may be fatigued, exhausted and have difficulty concentrating. It can further lead to a weakened immune system which can lead to an increase in medical absence.
Ultimately, being iron deficient prevents employees from maximising to their full potential.

What can corporates do
to address iron deficiency?
01 : Educate
One of our experts will present about iron deficiency at a location of your convenience. This can be organised as a lunch & learn session or similar. The presentation can be tailored to your needs and usually requires about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
02 : On-Site Testing
The Iron Suites team can conduct on-site blood tests for your staff. This is completed by our nurses and /or phlebotomists in a private room (or behind a privacy screen).
03 : Medical Consultation
Employees with confirmed iron deficiency or low Iron stores will be contacted for a consult. The consult is included as part of the package.
