A report summarizing the business case for health promotion and arguing for a more integrated approach to workplace health strategies.

Document Highlights

To benefit from workplace health programs, businesses need to align them with their vision, mission, and values. Organizations that have successfully done this understand that a focus on workplace health and wellness encompasses more than just health promotion - it also includes initiatives related to the psychological and physical work environments.

As such, focusing on the return on investment of individual workplace health promotion programs ignores the broader goals of saving costs, improving productivity and enhancing employee retention that initiated the offering of the programs in the first place.
