A growing body of evidence demonstrates that employers are able to reduce costs and maximise profits by investing in the health and well-being of employees. Careways therefore specialises in helping businesses maximise their bottom line by putting their people first.
We are South Africa’s leading provider of outcomes based Employee Wellness Programmes. The company is widely regarded as a leader in the South African wellness sector, having pioneered innovative wellness practises over the past three decades. Such is our success that many corporate enterprises have opted for products and systems developed and offered by Careways and put them into practice in the organisation’s own internal wellness programmes.
Through our national footprint, we provide innovative and comprehensive wellness solutions to benefit our extensive and diverse client base.
