Similarly to the already established concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), we understand Corporate Health Responsibility (CHR) as part of the sustainability concept of companies for optimizing health, performance and resilience. The aim of CHR is to make health risk factors diagnosable and in a resource oriented way treatable.
Corporate Health Responsibility – Systemic Health Management for the Optimization of Health, Performance and Resilience of Executive Managers
Against the background of increasing work stress and according health risks, corporate intervention strategies of preventive health promotion have come more and more into focus. Corporate Health Responsibility (CHR) is understood as part of the corporate culture and particularly as an important part of the sustainability concept of companies for optimizing health, performance and resilience.
The practical implications for CHR are shown using the example of our work-in-progress-tool MindFulCIE. This tool contains on the one hand as an integrative and reliable early warning system diagnostics and screening, which detect the main health and psychosocial characteristics of employees. On the other hand MindFulCIE is a systemic health and openly designed coaching program.
Systemic health management is viewed as cyclical and evolutionary process at different levels: All actions and interventions take place at the personal, systemic and strategic level. It can be adjusted at any point. Screening and diagnostics are not only deficit, but also resource-oriented, with starting points for solutions are identified already at the stage of diagnosis. The aim of the systemic health management is the promotion of self-efficacy at all levels through the continuous and individualized accompaniment.
