CHBC COVID Update

IMPORTANT CHBC COVID-19 UPDATE

We want to thank you for being a part of the Charleston Healthy Business Challenge community, especially as we weather uncertain times and face new challenges.

Your safety is of utmost importance to us, and with the current restrictions and future outlook as it relates to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to suspend in-person seminars at least through December 2020.

As leaders in the health and well-being community, our CHBC leadership team feels called to lead by example, and we feel strongly that the only way to do this is to safely transition away from public gatherings and group seminars for the remainder of the 2020 Charleston Healthy Business Challenge year.

With that said, we are now more than ever committed to providing the same high-quality health and well-being resources and support that we are known for and we are eager to support your businesses in new and innovative ways throughout the coming months.

To that end, it is our intention to adapt many of our seminars and scheduled content for an online environment, in a mindful way that incorporates the ethos of CHBC —creating a collaborative and supportive environment that promotes health and well-being within the business community.

We appreciate your patience, and hope to welcome you to many online events and continue to share valuable resources as we make them available. In the meantime, if you aren’t already receiving our newsletter, you can sign up here to receive details on our upcoming digital seminars, CHBC updates and more.

Best in health,

The CHBC Team

CREATE A HEALTHIER WORKPLACE

The City of Charleston, Medical University of South Carolina, BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., are partnering to create healthier workplaces.

The Charleston Healthy Business Challenge is designed to help businesses and organizations improve the overall health and well-being of their employees with the goal of reducing the growing cost of preventable illness and disease and create a culture of wellness in the workplace.

The Charleston Healthy Business Challenge is free and open to all businesses in the Charleston metropolitan area. Networking seminars will focus on the dimensions of worksite wellbeing and will provide participants with valuable tools and resources to help reach their worksite wellness goals. An awards ceremony will recognize and celebrate the successes of participating businesses.

BUT DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT!

" I encourage you to demonstrate your commitment to create and maintain a healthy work environment by joining the Charleston Healthy Business Challenge. By participating in this challenge and implementing strategies to improve the health of your workforce, you are not only improving the health of your organization, you are also acting as a leader in our community to improve the health of the entire Lowcountry. Over the past three years, 110  organizations participated in the seminars and sharing their healthy workplace successes. We are looking forward to building on those successes in the fourth year of the Healthy Business Challenge and making our region a healthier place to work, live and raise a family." — Mayor Techlenburg

"The key to a healthy lifestyle is a strong support group. When you're at the office 40 or more hours a week, your colleagues become your best advocates, that's why MUSC's Healthy Business Challenge is so important. Through MUSC's guidance for challenge participants, any workplace can become a healthier, more productive environment. I strongly encourage the civic leaderes of the Lowcountry to band together and promote positive health change in every business" — Mayor Summey
