We know and understand the overlap between HR & Occupational Health/Safety.  Often referred to as a ‘support functions’ we have seen and experienced first hand how these two functions can enhance corporate culture, improve retention, and drive employee engagement so it positively impacts the bottom line.

Qualitative results are usually consistent with this bottom line which further provides validity.  Increased employee engagement score, increased employee relations index score, increased score on health/safety exchange audits, etc.
