Joining the Cause to Get America Moving
Our country is in a health care crisis, well beyond worse case scenarios even the experts had predicted only ten years ago. With heart disease, diabetes, obesity and depression on the rise, every organization in America has an obligation and responsibility to lead its community.
The National Physical Activity Plan has a vision that one day, all Americans will be physically active and they will live, work, and play in environments that facilitate regular physical activity. By supporting employee health and wellness initiatives in the workplace, companies can improve employee morale, increase productivity, enhance work quality, and reduce staggering health care costs. The National Physical Activity Plan is part of our community outreach to help create a healthier society.
The NCPPA Business and Industry Sector Implementation team has created a CEO Pledge that gives America’s business leaders the chance to demonstrate their commitment to physical activity in the work environment.
For more information about the CEO Pledge and to find out how to get your company involved, please contact Business and Industry Sector Co-Leader, Tom Richards at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CEO Pledge Language
For the betterment of my company, our employees, their families, and our country, I pledge to improve employee health and wellness by providing opportunities and resources for physical activity before,
during or after the workday.
