Today's companies must begin to look at employee health, not as a cost, but an investment. Data show conclusively that the health status of a company's employees is directly correlated to the profitibility and competitiveness of the company. This is not an American challenge, but a global challenge and responsibility. This was a keynote address to a dozen major US corporations in May, 2008. I'm happy to discuss with anyone of interest.
