Three of the biggest challenges facing employees today:

Values icons

Tricky conversations.

Health issues, especially those concerning mental health, can often be awkward or embarassing to discuss with a line manager.
Employees may also feel guilty for not being able to work for the disruption their absence might cause to deadlines and workload.
Values icons

Lack of professional support.

Over half of employees would value getting professional advice when unwell.
It's natural for employees to want to be validated and protected, especially through long-term absence, but clinical advice and triage is something line managers and HR teams are largely not equipped to provide.

Privacy and confidentiality.

Health is a very personal issue. Many employees do not feel comfortable sharing the reason for their absence with their employer, whether for fear of being judged or simply because they believe it's not something their manager or HR team need to know.
This often means that employers can't provide adequate support to help their people feel better.

How we help you solve them.

Self-serve absence reporting-1

The GoodShape App makes absence reporting easier and more convenient than ever.

Professional clinical support.

Whether reporting an absence or just seeking advice, our clinical team can provide expert triage, self-care advice and signposting through an easy-to-book, free appointment.

Confidential service-1

Confidential service.

With GoodShape, you choose what information you want to share with your employer without sacrificing access to professional support.

Plus, all data is anonymised in wider employee health reports, so your employer only sees what you want them to.

“We would recommend GoodShape to other organisations who want to streamline processes and reduce absence.”

“... when we are alerted to
high levels of absence, such as musculoskeletal problems in the factory, we can proactively address them because we now have clear trigger levels in place.”

HR Director

“Across 11,800 staff, GoodShape helped to recoup 33,040 working days within 12 months - or the equivalent of returning 144 full-time staff to work.”

NHS Trust

“We estimate that we’ve saved £152,000 in terms of increased productivity and efficiency savings. This means that the absence service has provided a great return on investment, and having more employees available to work gives us a far greater opportunity to deliver a good service for our customers.”

GoodShape App Features:


Absence Reporting

Employees can use the app to report, update and close absences from work 24/7.

While doing so, they are reminded of organisational policies and be prompted to provide additional information, such as fit notes and contact information.


Daily Care Plans

A daily set of wellbeing activities known as a care plan. Each care plan includes hydration, diet, exercise, mental wellbeing, self-care, and rest activities.

Employees can track their progress and analytics are used to encourage them to proactively manage their wellbeing and get back to health as early, and safely, as possible.


Health Advice Library

A collection of clear, concise and safe clinical advice across a variety of topics including illness, allergies, wellbeing, and crisis management.


Wellbeing Advice

A fully curated wellbeing advice library, covering over 60 health topics. Included in the library are clear details on symptoms, self-care advice, worry signs and how to get support.

A video library is also provided with demonstrations of mobility exercises and walkthroughs of how to manage symptoms and carry out self-care activities.


Health Profile

A centralised health profile where they can store information, such as their allergies, medications, vaccinations, and medical conditions, enabling them to have an easy to reference, single point of truth for both health and absence in one place.
