Employees are a company’s most important asset, and often their largest expense. Employee retention, productivity, and reduced costs can be achieved through a holistic approach to health and well-being. Employers must elevate their approach to well-being beyond gym memberships and weight loss groups to include broad solutions to the employee’s entire environment, accounting for things like:


  • How office environment and physical layout impact mental health
  • How the ability to integrate exercise and a connection to the outdoors into the workday can increase worker retention and productivity
  • How prioritizing employee health and well-being fosters increased employee satisfaction and sense of value in the organization
  • And much more


Join the Pittsburgh Business Times and Green Building Alliance to gain insight from successful regional business leaders on their approaches to maximizing workplace health and productivity through broad and holistic definitions and tactics. Our panelists will share motivations, examples, lessons learned, and suggestions for other employers.

The Pittsburgh Business Times’ own Alan Robertson will moderate a discussion with the panelists and audience members to demonstrate how others can adapt these models.
