What We Do
Evolving Win-Win Organizations
Just as safety became an enterprise strategy in the 1950s and quality became an enterprise strategy in the 80s and 90s, health needs to become a highly valued strategy within organizations today.
Helping evolve win-win-organizations with respect to health and well-being is the core mission of Edington Associates. Our methods are based on the principles outlined in Dee Edington’s highly popular book on health management, Zero Trends: Health as a Serious Economic Strategy, and further developed in the 2016 book with co-author Jennifer Pitts, Shared Values, Shared Results: Positive Organizational Health as a Win-Win Philosophy.
A win-win organization actively strives to develop strength across the five pillars that provide the foundation for health and well-being in an organization. We provide consultation, practical tools, and resources for strengthening the five pillars and moving organizations, employees, their families, and surrounding communities to a higher level of performance.
Pillar 1: Engaged and Committed Leadership: We can help you develop and promote shared values and an inspired vision for all stakeholders.
Pillar 2: Positive Environment, Culture and Climate: We can help you assess the current status of your organization and develop a plan for a strategic, systematic, systemic, and sustainable approach, and implement concrete positive organizational health strategies.
Pillar 3: Positive Individual Health and Self-Leadership: We can guide you through the process of creating and implementing concrete positive individual health strategies that support key life skills for continuous learning and growth.
Pillar 4: Positive Personal Motivation: We can work with you to create enhanced conditions for positive personal motivation.
Pillar 5: Measuring and Communicating What Matters: We can help you develop a meaningful approach to ongoing evaluation that utilizes measures and measurement that matter to all stakeholders, and a communications strategy that engages and motivates.
If you are interested in better understanding and improving in any or all of these areas, we can help you create a customized strategy that builds on your current strengths and increases engagement of stakeholders from throughout your organization. We can help you evolve a healthy and thriving workforce and organization.
