Linking Workplace Health Promotion Best Practices and Organizational Financial Performance

Tracking Market Performance of Companies With Highest Scores on the HERO Scorecard
Objective: The aim of the study was to evaluate the stock performance of publicly traded companies that received high scores on the HERO Employee Health Management Best Practices Scorecard in Collaboration with Mercer© based on their implementation of evidence-based workplace health promotion practices.
Methods: A portfolio of companies that received high scores in a corporate health and wellness self-assessment was simulated based on past market performance and compared with past performance of companies represented on the Standard and Poor's (S&P) 500 Index.
Results: Stock values for a portfolio of companies that received high scores in a corporate health and wellness self-assessment appreciated by 235% compared with the S&P 500 Index appreciation of 159% over a 6-year simulation period.
Conclusions: Robust investment in workforce health and well-being appears to be one of multiple practices pursued by high-performing, well-managed companies.
