Health equity for every employee

Factors that impede workplace production are not always easy to identify. The Model Office Blueprint leverages the ARDX® team’s expertise to enhance and build upon a company’s health equity program by addressing how an employee’s career is impacted by Social Determinants of Health.

As business leaders, it is imperative to understand the various Social Determinants of Health that are likely impacting your employees inside and outside the workplace.

Individuals in the U.S. with low incomes and those who are impoverished have a life expectancy that is, on average, about 11 years shorter than those in the top 1% of earned income.6
