The Behavior Side of Preventive Medicine: Workplace, Employees & Pharma

April 13, 2016 by Bonnie D. Graham 10

The buzz: “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day…I’m feeling good.”

Bravo to your HR for offering employee health strategy programs! That must mean everyone is so healthy and fit that attendance and productivity are way up.

Not so much?

Perhaps it’s because they forgot to address how workforce behavior – do employees really WANT to change their health habits? – and life circumstances impact illness prevention.

Or maybe they didn’t pay adequate attention to the importance of engagement, commitment and alignment among employer and insurer plan sponsors, healthcare providers and individual workerss.

What now?

The experts speak.                                     

Dr. Paul Tunnah, pharmaphorum: “Human behaviour flows from three main sources: desire, emotion and knowledge.” (Plato)

Michael Maniccia, Deloitte: “Habit is habit, and not to be flung out the window by any man, but coaxed down-stairs one step at a time.” (Mark Twain)

Joe Miles, SAP: “Prevention is better than cure.” (Desiderius Erasmus)
