Leadership from Senior Management and continuing support for health promotion initiatives are critical elements in creating a healthy workplace. Senior leadership can demonstrate that the health of employees is a corporate value that is given the appropriate attention, resources and priority. Employees will be more likely to make healthier choices if provided with a supportive environment.
