Is There a Link Between Worker Health, Stock Price?

According to three new peer-reviewed studies released in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health, there is growing evidence that the health and well-being of an organization is one component of a high-performing, well-managed organization.

An article in Employee Benefit News notes that  "The studies examined the change in stock prices for three portfolios of employers after they won awards for their employee wellness programs or self-scored themselves as having a comprehensive program. In all three cases, award winners and those with high scores outperformed the S&P index, at rates ranging from seven percent to 16% per year."

MBGH's CEO Culture of Health program, in support of Healthy Shelby, provides employers the framework to build a strong foundation of health and well-being and can contribute to meeting this component of a high-performing organization. Email Cristie Upshaw Travis if you are interested in learning more about this program, which includes technical assistance to help you with easy-to-implement strategies and get you off to the right start.
