Recent research has provided new insights into the quantitative association between workforce well-being and business performance outcomes across a broad array of industries. Effective linkages between employee-level data and individual-or workgroup-attributable business outcomes have the potential to provide a basis for strategic business planning, recognizing the workforce as an organizational asset –and identifying workforce health and well-being interventions that can favorably impact business outcomes and employee health.
The Workforce Health and Well-being for All as a Sustainable Business Strategy project aims to develop and implement a data-driven workforce health and well-being decision-making framework that identifies and addresses social determinants of health, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) factors. With this approach, a culture of health, including Total Worker Health for all employees can be more meaningfully realized –with the goal of linking workforce health and well-being to business performance measures.
