Everyone that has a lust for life knows it takes a lot of money to enjoy a high standard of health which encompasses man's physical, emotional and spiritual needs. The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine reported on Sept. 11, 2013, "Study Suggests Companies with a ‘Culture of Health’ May Outperform Others in the Marketplace."
Good businesses recognize the fundamental link between encouraging good health and resulting high productivity. It is stated in The World Health Organization Constitution, "The enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being."
The American Journal of of Occupational and Environmental Medicine has published research aimed at testing the hypothesis that "efforts to reduce a workforce's health and safety risks can be associated with a company's stock market performance." These researchers have concluded when companies build a culture of health by focusing on the well-being and safety of their workforce a greater value is yielded for their investors.
In investment simulations companies with strong health, wellness, and safety programs had better S&P 500 average rates of return. The study authors have said their research supports the view that "focusing on health and safety of a workforce is good business.” It is worth consideration that firms which stress such high health values in dealing with their own employees have corporate and management groups which are overall more healthy than other groups and so their associated upbeat attitudes translate into more success in every sphere.
