Institute for Health and Productivity Management

About the Institute for Health and Productivity Management (IHPM) and WorkPlace Wellness Alliance (WPWA)

IHPM/WPWA is a global nonprofit enterprise devoted to establishing the full economic value of employee health as a business asset—a neglected investment in the increased productivity of human capital.

The Institute provides data analyses, measurement tools, and health and productivity management services and consultation to its partners and clients in the United States, Europe, China, the Middle East, and Russia. IHPM helps employers identify the full economic cost impact of employee health issues on business performance, design and implement the best programs to reduce this impact by improving functional health and productivity, and measure the success of their efforts in financial terms.

IHPM’s unique role as the driving global force for converting health from a medical benefit cost to a productive business investment for employers and nations was acknowledged by the World Economic Forum when it chose the Institute to assume leadership of its global WorkPlace Wellness Alliance—a group of leading multinational companies focused on transforming workplaces into environments that promote and sustain optimal health, wellbeing, and performance.

IHPM’s Academy for Training & Certification™ in Health and Productivity Management

Contact IHPM to schedule an on-site two-day or executive one-day training in the Professional Discipline of Health & Productivity Management

WorkPlace Centers™

The WorkPlace Centers™ were created for the unique role of conducting fieldwork with actual employers and service providers to advance health and productivity management. These field research and demonstration projects engage IHPM ‘in the trenches’ with actual employees, and they generate new data and examples that further build the business case for investments to increase the human capital value of the workers’ health.

WorkPlace Wellness Alliance™

The evidence is compelling that a healthy workforce is vital to a country’s productivity, competitiveness and wellbeing. More than half the working population spends the majority of its waking hours at work — making it a unique setting to educate, incentivize, and support individuals to develop healthier lifestyle behaviors. This has a proven “multiplier" effect, as employees take their health and wellbeing into their families and communities. [Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum]

Since 2103 when its leadership was given to IHPM at the Forum’s Annual Conference in Davos, Swizerland, the WorkPlace Wellness Allilance has been working steadily toward the goal of improving health, wellbeing and performance around the world.
