Health Means Business
The private sector has a role to play in improving the health and wellbeing of their employees and communities they serve. Investing in innovative strategies to support a healthy workforce helps enable greater economic opportunity and prosperity for all.
In 2015, we partnered with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to develop Health Means Business— a two-year collaboration with local and regional chambers to foster business engagement in building healthier communities.
Through a National Summit, regional forums across the country, case studies, original research, an awards program, and other resources, this unprecedented partnership brought together some of the most innovative leaders at the forefront of the health movement to empower businesses to build a culture of health in America.
The Chamber Foundation’s Health Means Business campaign hosted the first National Summit and Healthy10 Awards in 2017 in Washington, D.C. The National Summit brought together some of the most innovative businesses at the forefront of the health movement.
Businesses understand that healthy communities are vital for long-term growth and competitiveness. We are delighted to partner with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and bring to light the important role businesses play in community wellness.— Suzanne P. Clark, President and CEO, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
