Executive Summary

COVID-19 sent shockwaves through populations, economies and business operations around the world. In response to the challenges associated with COVID-19, EHS functions globally recognized the need to adjust their normal means of operating. One such way firms have looked to enhance their traditional operational focus areas has been that of managing occupational health. In the latest global survey of 301 EHS decision-makers, Verdantix found that firms will see an increase in spend for occupational health solutions and a rising adoption of occupational health software. Furthermore, the growing focus on total worker health has boosted the inherent value placed on occupational health as a whole, which is required to support and manage worker mental health and wellness. This report analyses the investment priority and appetite for occupational health solutions identified in the latest Verdantix global corporate survey of 301 EHS decision-makers spanning, 31 countries and 25 industries.
