The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, with support from the de Beaumont Foundation, brought together 40 business and public health leaders, including executives from Disney, USAA, IBM, Goodyear, and more for a series of focus group interviews to share how their businesses can effectively respond to COVID-19 and improve the health and well-being of workers and their communities over time.
At the core of the ideas offered was a fundamental appreciation of how the current crisis presents a unique opportunity to introduce innovative solutions that will positively impact the health and well-being of workers and the larger community. Based on the discussions, we assembled a series of “solutions” that businesses can adopt immediately, on their own, or as part of coalitions. We also offered some “big, hairy, audacious, goals” that require business leaders to step outside their comfort zones and advocate for broader societal initiatives aimed at re-building America’s crumbling public health infrastructure.
