On April 30th, more than 200 leaders in business, academia and local government gathered for a panel discussion among national experts in workplace health promotion moderated by Senator Amy Klobuchar. Hosted by the Alliance for a Healthier Minnesota at Target’s Minneapolis headquarters, the event highlighted HealthLead™ accreditation – the emerging standard in workplace health promotion – and Target’s award-winning culture of well-being.
Target has partnered with Jim Harter, Ph.D, chief scientist in Workplace Management and Well-being for Gallup and Gallup to advance its robust culture of health and well-being, with promising results.
“Over the last decade, Gallup has worked with hundreds of organizations to help leaders create engagement and enhance the well-being and performance of their workforce,” Harter says. “The most progressive organizations not only understand that they are in the business of boosting their employees’ well-being, but they also use this as a competitive advantage to recruit and retain employees. Target is taking the lead in embracing well-being as a strategy to improve team member lives while it improves performance.”
