Health, Safety & Wellbeing: Taking care of business.
Healthy business is a people-centered approach to doing business. Studies show that employers who foster a culture of health and safety at work have healthier, happier employees—and healthier bottom lines, too.
By creating a work environment that promotes safety, physical activity, healthy habits, and overall wellbeing, companies can benefit from higher employee satisfaction, increased loyalty, improved productivity, and lower health care costs.
Recently, the Chamber partnered with Tri-County Health Department in the Worksite Wellness Initiative. The goal of the initiative is to engage organizations to adopt best practices and policies to provide a healthy workplace environment.
This initiative provides resources, assessment tools, counseling, and funding for Chamber member businesses that commit to joining the coalition. Learn more by attending one of our Wellness Rocks! events or contact Alicia Early for more information.
