Sponsored by: Creating a Culture of Health by Engaging the C-Suite and Employees To Promote Better Health

Senior management support of health and wellness programs is a critical element to the success of such initiatives. The top-down support of health and wellness programs drives employees to participate and engage in efforts to improve their health. Driven by healthcare cost increases that are eating into corporate profits, companies that embrace a culture of health across their organization not only improve the health of their employees and benefit from its related impact on productivity, but also improve corporate profitability and shareholder value.

During Creating a Culture of Health by Engaging the C-Suite and Employees To Promote Better Health, a 90-minute webinar on December 4, 2007, Greg Lehman, president and CEO of HealthFitness and David Senisbaugh, director of integrated benefits, at Eastman Chemical Company will describe the key steps in creating a culture of health that engages both the C-suite and employees.
