IHC Merwede has received a silver certificate for its health policy for employees. This prestigious certificate was issued by the International Institute for Health Management and Quality (IHMQ) following an extensive health audit of the company.


Health management at IHC Merwede refers to the rules, measures and arrangements that are set up in order to enable employees to work well, in a healthy and responsible way, and has long-term benefits. IHC Merwede has appointed a health manager, who can offer employees preventive medical examinations, provide individual diet and sports programmes, and even recommend changes to the menu in the canteen. The goal of health management is twofold and results in a greater feeling of wellbeing for IHC Merwede employees and less absenteeism for the company.


The purpose of IHMQ’s accreditation is to improve health at work using the principles of health improvement, management and quality. One of the building blocks of this approach is the health audit. This is intended for organisations that value the health and wellbeing of their employees and want to develop a health management system that is fully integrated into their business. An organisation receives the Model of Good Practice Certificate when it is proven through the audit process that the goals for the health of employees have been reached.


“This certification for IHC Merwede is an enormous appreciation of the personnel policy,” says IHC Merwede’s President Govert Hamers. “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. The results of the health audit for IHC Merwede represent a great achievement for all concerned.”
