Healthy Workplaces Conference & Awards


Arogya World’s Healthy Workplaces program recognizes employers
leading the way in health & wellness programs for employees.

Our 2018 Healthy Workplace Conference & Awards–held November 14-15, 2018 in Bangalore– recognized several companies for their commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles in the workplace. With long work days and commute times, employees often neglect healthier physical habits out of devotion to their work. Addressing NCD prevention in the workplace is smart, and part of our commitment to helping employees lead healthy lives. This event is fast being recognized as the knowledge hub for advancing workplace health in India. Attendees learn from experts and peers how you can make your employees healthier, happier, and more productive.
