The health of an organization is critical to its success and sustainability. To survive, an organization must have technical competencies. To thrive however, an organization must also be healthy. Organizational health is the multiplier of its employees’ talent and potential; the healthier an organization, the more of its employees’ talent it can draw out and utilize.

Furthermore, unhealthy work environments can have negative implications spreading beyond the workplace.
