Employee Health & WellnessHelping 100 Million Employees Worldwide

Emplyee H&W - Health & Wellness Pillar - The Consumer Goods Forum

Our members have committed to implement employee health and wellness programmes by 2016.

 
With a potential 100 million people being reached by these programmes, we will support our members who are at varying stages of implementation. We can achieve this goal through a variety of communication and educational programmes aimed at helping raise employee awareness on health, wellness and the importance of attaining a healthy energy balance.
 
Examples include providing employee wellness, activity and nutrition programmes; encouraging and supporting employees to make informed choices and become more physically active; promoting overall physical and mental health (cognitive, social and emotional); promoting healthy skin through UV protection (sunscreen and practices); and encouraging self-confidence through healthful practices and positive body image.
 
We have also established a dedicated Employee Health & Wellness Working Group, who are looking into ways to help drive the industry forward as we aim to help employees around the world pursue healthier lifestyle choices and diets. The Working Group meets regularly and helped in the creation of the Employee Health & Wellness chapter in our Health & Wellness Toolkit. Those member companies interested in joining should contact us to learn more.
