CHO (Chief Healthcare Officer) Concept

Under the CHO concept, enterprises and organizations will establish the position of an executive manager with the responsibility for promoting the health of employees and their dependents.

The proposed CHO will be an executive manager to promote employee health management, the so-called corporate health management, with the goal of improving harmoniously, management indicators that result from raising labor productivity, the degree of satisfaction with health, and reduction of medical expenses. Through these health related measures, the CHO will help improve the performance of the entire enterprise and contribute to raising the corporate value.

CHO Concept Promotion Consortium

Currently, 114 enterprises/organizations are participating. (As of November 13, 2015)
