What is the Healthy Workplace Toolkit?

Research demonstrates that having healthy employees increases employee productivity and results in lower employer healthcare costs. From changing vending machine offerings to switching up how meetings are held, the path to a healthy workplace starts with just a few simple steps.

Led by Atrium Health, the Healthy Workplace Toolkit makes it easy for employers to create a culture of wellness in the workplace. The actions can be implemented by businesses of all sizes, and many are low-cost or no-cost.

The Healthy Workplace Toolkit includes:

  • Educational posters and other materials to help implement change

  • Encourage proper hand hygiene. All employees should wash their hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Plus, hand sanitizer should be available throughout the work area.
