Healthcare experts plump for Posturite

Who do the experts in occupational health use when equipping their own offices? Posturite, of course.

The company was called in to supply all the furniture and equipment for Premier Occupational Healthcare’s move to a new headquarters building in Folkestone.

As one of the UK’s leading providers of occupational health and wellbeing services, Premier recognised the importance of ensuring that its own premises met the highest standards of ergonomic efficiency.

So it turned to Posturite to plan the fitting out of its new high-spec building at Shearway Business Park.
Included in the contract was all the seating, desking and storage for the reception area, general office, boardroom and clinical rooms.

Premier Occupational Healthcare’s MD, Dr Manuel Fernandes said:

“Like us, Posturite is one of the leaders in its field so it made sense to call on its expertise and experience to furnish our new building."

“We believe in practising what we preach, and we knew that we could rely on Posturite to deliver the sort of solutions that we often recommend to client businesses to protect the health and wellbeing of their desk-based staff."

“We have worked with the company many times in the past to help address problems that clients may be having with employees suffering back problems or work related upper limb disorders, so our decision to use them for our own business was founded on a good background of knowledge about their levels of service and professionalism.”

Premier Occupational Healthcare was formed in 1999 and has grown rapidly to become one of the country’s leading suppliers of quality and affordable occupational health and wellbeing services.

It employs more than 50 full-time staff and a large national network of healthcare professionals to deliver bespoke, cost-effective and proactive health-related services to companies employing as few as four people to multinationals with more than 14,000 employees.

Its fast-expanding client portfolio includes a diverse range of industries from manufacturing and logistics to call centres and retailers.

Posturite national account manager Julian Millar said: “We regard it as the highest compliment to be asked to supply the furniture for a business that advises companies on the effective management of workplace health and wellbeing issues.

“We share many of the same goals to help employers care for and understand the health needs of their employees, enabling them to reduce sickness absence levels and improve staff performance and productivity.”
