Business

Good health is good for business. When employers invest in their human capital by offering wellness, preventive, condition management and lifestyle programs and services, there are lower health care costs, fewer sick days, and increased productivity. When communities are healthier, employer benefit costs are reduced, economic development thrives, and everyone in the community benefits.

PURPOSE

All of us have a role to play in raising awareness about the multiple factors that affect our health and the health of our communities. The County Health Rankings is a nationally-recognized publication providing key information on the health status of local communities. As an employer, you are uniquely positioned to engage and influence decision makers within and outside of your organization and sector to create a healthier community. Think of this as a user’s guide to the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, which you can use as a benchmarking tool and a call to action, informing community members about the findings. You can then use the tools and guidance found in the Roadmaps to Health Action Center to mobilize your community to take specific action steps so all residents can be healthy.

A county's health greatly affects its economic competitiveness. Achieving lower health care costs, fewer sick days, and increased productivity are all critical to economic growth.
