Oklahoma recently ranked 47th in health rankings by the United Health Foundation. As a result, Oklahoma businesses could see increased healthcare costs if rankings remain low.
To be proactive, businesses can schedule a complimentary one-on-one discussion with a Healthy Living Program Business Coordinator to plan health promotion strategies, cultivating a healthier workplace culture.
Healthy behaviors can be reinforced at the workplace by adding fresh fruits and vegetables to a staff meeting or by taking a walk around the block. Supporting tobacco cessation is also an effective strategy for businesses to reduce costly healthcare claims related to tobacco use.
