Leaders are courageous, take risks and inspire employees to embrace health. They embed health into what they believe, what they reward, their expectations and decisions.
Seize leadership opportunities to foster a culture of health:
- Share your wellness vision.
- Lead by example.
- Budget time, staff, and money to wellness.
- Support employee health with rewards and policies.
While top leadership is essential to building a culture of health, leaders at all levels can inspire employees to embrace wellness. Middle managers and wellness champions play important roles in weaving wellness into “how we do things here.”
