Hear from Pacific Coast Builder CEO about HealthWorks
Pacific Coast Building Products, Inc., a major building materials supplier with 2,300 employees across the Western United States, has made significant inroads in lowering the risk of chronic diseases within its workforce. Its success in creating a culture of health at work and encouraging healthy lifestyles is due to an important partnership with Kaiser Permanente and its cutting-edge workforce wellness programs.
Kaiser Permanente has long recognized the importance of a healthy American workforce, and the need for employers to keep health care costs low. As companies invest in preventive care and employee wellness programs, many employers are now seeing critical results — less absenteeism, presenteeism, increased worker productivity and cost savings. In fact, one-third of the employees at Pacific Coast Building Products who smoked cigarettes — quit!
