About the American Heart Association CEO Roundtable – working to create healthy companies and communities
The CEO Roundtable was formed in 2013 because, unfortunately, while many companies offer workplace health programs, we lack the necessary data to know what works best. That’s why CEOs from many of the world’s largest and most admired companies, joined with the American Heart Association to create the CEO Roundtable, dedicated to implementing evidence-based approaches to workplace health that focus on employee engagement and building a corporate culture of health. Together, this leadership collaborative works to design, test, evaluate and scale workplace health initiatives.
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.
They drive innovations in employee health through evidence-based interventions and engage and improve the lives of their nearly 10 million employees and family members. The CEO Roundtable is creating real-world actionable strategies to enable a healthy, high-performing workforce that ultimately drives business growth and transforms health in companies and communities.
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 to help support the AHA’s goal of improving the cardiovascular health of all Americans 20 percent by 2020.
