Why should I bring health to work?

Have you ever wondered why? Yes, work is important but it can also influence many areas of your overall health by providing:

  • Income / Social status (e.g., salary and position)
  • Social support environment (e.g., friends and co-workers)
  • Education (e.g., on-the-job training)
  • Employment / Working conditions (e.g., safety)
  • Social environment (e.g., overall culture at work)
  • Health services (e.g., medical or drug plans)

When I feel healthy at work I have…

  • Decreased stress
  • Increased job satisfaction
  • Increased morale
  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced personal health care expenses
  • Increased awareness of how to improve my health
