Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, respiratory diseases and mental illness, are a threat to individuals, communities, businesses and economic development. Workplace health promotion programs are an effective means of promoting workforce health and preventing NCDs, but many health-related choices occur in the community, influenced by social, economic, and environmental factors (e.g., education, housing, transportation). However, most employers fail to address the environmental and social drivers of workforce health at the community level, resulting in a major barrier to the effectiveness of workforce health initiatives. This page presents the business case for linking workforce and community health, and strategies employers and community groups can use for strategic cross-sector collaboration.
