As a business leader, you have the unique opportunity to enact meaningful change in the lives of your employees by addressing total well-being. But to do so, you must first recognize the underlying factors that impact health.

The communities where your employees live, learn, and work has more to do with their health than their behaviors. Social health factors — like access to affordable housing, healthy foods, and financial stability — affect nearly half of all workers and directly impact individual well-being.1 Studies show that even well-paid employees are living paycheck-to-paycheck and may not be taking full advantage of the health care benefits you offer.2

By taking small steps today, you can make a difference in the future of your employees. Get the guide to develop a holistic understanding of your employee’s needs and begin implementing policies that encourage a more equitable workplace.
