Policies must drive the health agenda

Policies must drive the health agenda

Corporate health policies must be clearly documented so that a consistent global health strategy can be delivered. While most companies state they have documented policies, our experience is that many lack specificity and enforcement with C-suite accountability and appropriate resources.

Corporate health policies are critical to defining the purpose and objectives of an organization’s employee health strategy; ensuring the strategy is implemented, delivered and maintained

Recommended Action

  • Companies should maintain documented policies to ensure a healthy workforce.
  • These policies must include sufficient resources to meet these objectives.
  • A corporate health checklist (see Appendix F) can facilitate the evaluation of the company program.
