Creating a culture of health in the workplace

Employees with a strong culture of health at work were more likely to report being happy, less likely to report that stress has a negative impact on their work, and less likely to cite the work environment as an obstacle to good health. Conversely, unhealthy workers experience decreased productivity and increased health care expenses, both of which negatively impact your bottom line. How to create a culture of health? You can begin with the Healthier You library, an online resource that offers digital access to timely articles, videos, blogs, and tips developed by Johns Hopkins experts for the healthy woman and for everyone who wants to enjoy healthy aging, a healthy heart, and healthy sleep.

Learn more about the benefits the Healthier You library can bring to your workplace.
