With one of every four Georgia employees personally affected by health issues, Community Health Charities of Georgia (CHCG) is now offering the Health Matters at WorkTM program to Georgia employers. This free program gives employees access to an extensive array of health information through a Web site (http://www.healthmattersatwork.org), podcasts, webinars and more.
Through a user-friendly online portal, employers who participate in the Health Matters at WorkTM program can provide their employees with:
- Health Risk Assessment Tools
- Warning Signs and Symptoms of Chronic Diseases
- Disease Management Tools
- Diet and Exercise Tools
- Health and Wellness Programs for the Workplace
Employees can also have access to a library of podcasts that focus on numerous health topics and were developed with the support of our nation’s leading health charities. Webinars with respected health professionals and charity executives are provided on a regular basis, giving employees the opportunity to participate whenever the topic is important to them or their loved ones. Other potential resources include Lunch & Learns, on-site seminars and a monthly newsletter.
“Partnering with Community Health Charities of Georgia is an ideal way to show our strong commitment to the health and wellness of GH&I employees and their families,” said Dick Ingwersen, Managing Partner of Gifford, Hillegass & Ingwersen LLP, the first company to implement the Health Matters at WorkTM program in Georgia. “This program makes it very easy to provide health information that our employees can trust.”
