CEO Pledge Signers and Testimonials

“To promote health in the workplace, there must be consistent and visible support from leaders, beginning with the CEO,” points out Laurie Whitsel, the director of policy research at the American Heart Association (AHA), and president-emeritus of the NCPPA board of directors.

“Leadership is critical,” agrees Scott Goudeseune, the CEO of the American Council of Exercise (ACE), and president of the NCPPA’s board. “There must be clear, strong, and ongoing support, beginning with the CEO, for workplace health and wellness programs to take root.”

“This pledge may be just the catalyst required to make those work environments that encourage employees to become more active the new cultural norm,” says Helen Durkin, J.D., IHRSA’s executive vice president of global public policy.
