The Heart of a Healthy Workforce
The COVID-19 pandemic has arguably changed the world of work more radically than any other single event in a century. Research shows that employers who embrace a well workforce will continue to position themselves ahead of the curve.
The new Cigna report titled, “The Heart of a Healthy Workforce: Employer-Sponsored Health Plans are Key to Economic Prosperity [PDF],” looks at the inextricable link between employer-sponsored health benefits and employee well-being, business productivity and overall economic prosperity.
Elise Labott, adjunct professor at American University, and David Cordani, president and CEO of Cigna, recently chatted about how the COVID-19 pandemic has upended the workplace, driving greater focus on employee health and well-being.
Experts from Cigna, Accenture, Economist Impact, and Business Group on Health sat down earlier this month to discuss employee expectations in today’s hybrid work environment, the impact of stress and burnout on business growth, as well as best practices to manage employee health and well-being.
As American businesses navigate new ways of working amid the pandemic, a recent survey of executives and employees from across six of the biggest industries suggests that a focus on individual health can help strengthen business performance.
