• About the American Heart Association CEO Roundtable

    The American Heart Association CEO Roundtable is an unprecedented leadership collaborative exclusively dedicated to improving employee and community health through evidence-based solutions. Nearly 50 CEOs have joined with the American Heart Association to build a high performing and healthy workforce by tackling the most pressing health concerns for their collective 13 million+ employees and family members.

    Fueled by the science and mission of the Association, member CEOs take bold action to help create solutions and systemic change for companies across the country.

    By testing, evaluating and sharing information about what works in workplace health, the CEO Roundtable is helping to scale evidence-based standards and best practices.

    Leading By Example

    CEO Roundtable members have collectively pledged to support these guiding principles:

    1. Model a healthy lifestyle and foster an organizational culture of health.
    2. Incorporate evidence-based solutions in employer sponsored health offerings for employees and families.
    3. Solve for priority health concerns facing employees and recognize companies for achieving measurable improvements in the health of the workforce.
    4. Implement strategies and solutions to break down barriers to health equity in the workplace and in communities.
    5. Inspire non-member CEOs to further equitable health and well-being in companies and communities across the nation and around the globe.
