McKinsey Health Institute: Working nine to thrive

Better aligning employment with modifiable drivers of health could unlock years of higher-quality life and create trillions of dollars of economic value.

  • Health can be meaningfully modified by factors outside traditional healthcare systems, including work factors.
  • Employers have considerable opportunities to improve health through six modifiable drivers: social interaction, mindsets and beliefs, productive activity, stress, economic security, and sleep.
  • Globally, improving employee health and well-being could create $3.7 trillion to $11.7 trillion in economic value.
