Healthy Workforce

Healthy Workforce is about living our lives to the fullest at work and at home by actively engaging in our own health—starting where we are, whatever our size, shape, fitness level or mindset.

Healthy Workforce is about powerfully and purposefully transforming our work culture and ourselves from the inside out to be better able to provide the best care for our patients. We are as committed to improving our health as we are to improving health care. First negotiated by the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions as part of the 2005 National Agreement, Healthy Workforce is one element powering the transformation of the workplace. We focus strongly on the Value Compass, striving to provide a Best Place to Work for all Kaiser Permanente employees.
