Event Description

A business’s most important asset is its employees. And, increasingly, the health of a business depends on the health of its employees. Our country is grappling with a health crisis of astonishing proportions, and 50 percent of company profits go toward health care costs.

Building health in the workplace is critical, but what happens when employees go home can influence their health even more – and can undermine workplace investments in a healthy workforce. Employers, traditionally generous to their local community’s needs, have a stake in the community’s overall health. A healthier community makes for healthier, more productive employees and lowers health care costs.

Prevention Means Business, an infographic produced by the Public Health Institute in partnership with the American Public Health Association, graphically illustrates the connection between healthy places and thriving businesses.

Join us for this to discuss how businesses benefit by supporting health—in the workplace and in the community.
