Business Group Blog

Welcome to our blog.

The Business Group Blog was created to share and discuss information about challenges and solutions to the health care benefits issues that large employers face today and tomorrow — such as controlling health care costs, reforming the health care delivery system, and engaging employees in their health and benefits — and will provide insight into national health policy issues. We hope you find this information useful and will consider subscribing to the blog and sharing any thoughts or ideas with us at blog@businessgrouphealth.org.

Achieving Optimal Well-being by Reducing Disparities and Promoting Health Equity During National Minority Health Month

On this last day of National Minority Health Month, let us continue to live our commitment to eliminate disparities and to advance health equity.  Health Equity exists when all people — regardless of race, gender, socio-economic status, geographic location or other societal constructs — have the same access and resources to achieve optimal health and well-being. Social, economic and environmental factors are strong contributors to health inequities. Employers can make a difference through intentional design of programs and policies to support health and well-being across diverse populations in the workplace, as well as through partnerships in community to impact areas where people live, work and play.
