Investing in Workplace Health and Well-being

United Nations Global Compact

Beyond the basic obligation for ensuring occupational health and safety, companies have enormous potential to positively advance the health and well-being of their workforce. Work-related non-communicable diseases, such as cancer, chronic respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes in addition to work-related mental ill-health and stress negatively affect worker productivity. This webinar explores the opportunities related to SDG 3 through advancing health, well-being and equity in the workplace, including employees and workers in the value chain. Speakers provided examples of how promoting health and well-being in the workplace together with decent occupational health and safety is good for employees and employers alike.
