* Just 3 companies who had used the service said employees had returned to work earlier
* Over a third (38%) of companies rely entirely on the NHS to medically treat employees
* No barriers to employing disabled workers or those with long term health issues by over a third (36%) of companies
* Employers increasingly offering flexible working and workplace modifications for workers over 50
