The case for a healthy, active workforce
Active employees are healthier, safer, and more engaged. They miss less work. They cost less in health care, disability, and workers’ compensation. They are at lower risk for diabetes, heart disease, depression, and other chronic conditions. Yet 42 percent of Oregon adults fall short of the recommended half hour of daily physical activity.

- Encourage active commuting
- Design a work environment that boosts physical activity.

- Put it in Writing
