Is Your Work Environment a Culture of Health?
Although changing the culture is not easy, it is something that can be under the control of the management. Change the culture must be a part of your overall strategy. To achieve a culture of wellness, the first step requires defining what specific goals you want to accomplish. You will need to define and describe your healthy culture. How will changing to a culture of wellness affect productivity, performance, and cost? You should include in your cost model the financial impact of medical care, disability, illness, absenteeism, treatment, worker compensation, health claims, health insurance cost, and turnovers.
