New GBGH Resource: Well-being Platforms
As companies approach well-being globally, they will want to build a global platform for their initiatives. This Global Business Group on Health℠ (GBGH) publication discusses the business case, measurement approaches and sustainability elements that employers should consider as they build their own.

New GBGH Resource: Tobacco
With tobacco being a leading cause of death and disability, companies are considering moving to a global tobacco-free policy. The success of that policy is truly dependent on employees having access to tobacco cessation resources. This GBGH publication highlights local and regional approaches to tobacco cessation including vendors GBGH members utilize at a country or regional level. For additional global tobacco cessation materials, please visit the GBGH website.
