WASHINGTON, April 15, 2015 /3BL Media/ – Community Health Charities can’t help your employees with their taxes, but they do partner with companies across the country to create programs that promote good health and encourage employee engagement.
More than 133 million Americans suffer from a chronic disease or life-threatening illness. However, 70% of these diseases are associated with modifiable health risks and can be prevented. Partnering with Community Health Charities can help educate your employees about chronic disease, engage them in giving and volunteer programs, improve their health and increase overall productivity.
“Community Health Charities brings the combined strength of our network of nearly 2,000 vetted and trusted national and local member charities to the workplace,” said Thomas G. Bognanno, president & CEO of Community Health Charities. “As a result, we make it easier for employees to access the reliable health information, services and programs they need.”
Overall, businesses with more engaged employees see an 18% increase in productivity, and 87% of employees say that volunteering has developed their teamwork skills. Implementing these programs within your company is critical to the overall success of your employees and your business.
