Create Healthy Workplaces

Creating workplace environments more suitable for healthy living is a win-win for employees and employers. A healthy business means more productivity, more energy and a lot less stress. To get started, employers can stock vending machines with healthy options or put up posters promoting healthy living. Employees can make simple changes like taking the stairs over the elevator or trying easy, office exercises.

You can even connect with a TSET Healthy Living Program grantee in your area to become Certified Healthy businesses!
