Work Affects Health or Health Affects Work? Why Business Must Consider Both
Health and productivity are related… but which is the cause and which is the effect? Does better health lead to improved performance? Or do high-performing workforces value and protect their health more?
In a classic he said/she said debate, two experts will take opposing positions that will challenge audience assumptions about how employers can encourage optimal health and performance. Each will present solid evidence about why their hypothesis is a stronger strategy for managing cost and improving work and health outcomes. Each will attempt to convince you whose approach is best. They will also admit (grudgingly) what both strategies share in common. Who is right? You will have to decide.
This session will:
- Describe two different employer approaches to workforce health improvement
- Assess existing research in support of these contrasting strategies
- Compare and contrast the relative merits of these approaches when used in isolation or when combined
