CEOs Take on Wellness as Corporate Strategy

As work becomes more sedentary, the global workforce is becoming fatter, sicker and less productive due to chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes, according to a new report prepared by PricewaterhouseCoopers Health Research Institute in conjunction with the World Economic Forum.

For corporations adopting wellness programs, PwC provides a framework to ensure the effectiveness of those initiatives.
