Employee Wellness in Our Portfolio
We work to improve the health and well-being of portfolio company employees through our Wellness Works program and Worker Safety effort. Our Co-CEO, Henry Kravis, along with three CEOs from our portfolio companies participate in the American Heart Association CEO Roundtable.
Impacting Employee Health: Wellness Works
Nearly half of the roughly 980,000 individuals employed by our portfolio companies reside in the United States, where cancer, heart disease, and stroke-related health issues cause illness, shorten productive lives, and consume a large portion of employer and employee medical costs. In many cases, these diseases and their related health challenges can be avoided or reduced through healthier living and early diagnosis.
