Precise and insightful auditing will help make sense of your sickness absence data. All of our services are subject to continuous auditing and timely publication of Management Information reports. Our work is periodically audited by independent occupational health specialists.

Flex can review your existing health and absence management policies or provide a bespoke policy writing service that is relevant to your business needs.

Confidential and secure

Flex is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office and adheres to Data Protection legislation in everything we do. All information is processed lawfully and securely.

Procurement advice

Many businesses and public sector organisations engage in lengthy procurement programmes to identify a suitable occupational health provider. Using anonymised information to ensure transparency and lack of bias we can help shortlist providers, appraise quality and price aspects of tender responses, and provide interview questions to ensure that you appoint the best possible provider.


Managers are often afraid to conduct risk assessments or discuss illness with employees resulting in frustration and lengthy absences. We provide training packages for HR teams and line managers to help manage risk assessments and sickness absence within the workplace.
