Implementing a culture of health

Abstract

All corporations intentionally and unintentionally impacted public health through their positive and negative contributions to consumer health, employee health, community health, and environmental health. The sum of these four impacts constituted a corporation’s population health footprint (see Exhibit 6.1). Few corporations had yet calculated the sum of their combined impact on public health in this integrated way. However, by 2016, a handful of organizations were pursuing a Culture of Health—a culture in which health effects were consistently discussed and considered in everyday corporate decision-making. At these corporations, managers and employees strove to achieve as positive a population health footprint as possible. (See Exhibit 6.2 for sample population health footprint initiatives within three companies.)
