Health: Our Business III
Poor mental health impacts everyone, either directly or indirectly, and depression is expected to be the leading disease burden by 2030 (Source: WHO, 2012) — hampering the success of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The CMO Network is committed to tackling this challenge and continues to focus on making significant positive improvements by leveraging its collective impact.
One element of tackling this challenge is by launching the third volume in the series of Health: Our Business which includes case studies on existing mental health programmes from nine organisations: Emirates, GSK, International SOS, KPMG, MSD, Network Rail, Sibanye Stillwater, Unilever and Bupa. In addition to showcasing examples of positive mental health and wellbeing initiatives, this report contains recommendations to guide other organisations in implementing a mental wellbeing programme of their own.

Together, they can leverage their combined insight, experience and global reach to solve some of the world’s biggest health problems - namely heart disease, cancer, diabetes and mental health - through workplace health initiatives. The network comprises of Chief Medical Officers from some of the world’s most innovative businesses, such as GSK, Unilever, Intel and Walmart, who have collective responsibility of a workforce of over eight million people.
To bring about significant, scalable and sustained improvements in workplace health, the network is focusing on behaviour change.
The network has compiled its second report, Health: Our Business II, which shares case studies from the corporate world, how businesses are putting health and wellbeing into action.
Health: Our Business I
The first in a series of reports, this volume aims to identify what the greatest opportunities are in workplace health. We asked 32 of the world’s leading experts in workplace health and behaviour change from a variety of backgrounds to be involved. The report categorises insights into five key themes; workplaces of the future, improving employee engagement, a new role for CMOs, public and community health and digital opportunities.
This report is both a manifesto for future action and a catalyst for things to come. Our network is open, growing, collaborative and ambitious to act. It is also therefore an invitation to anyone out there who would like to join us on this journey.
