As you know, the main goal of any organization is to make a profit, build financial capacity and maximize income. In this process, the work of the company’s management is important in finding any ways to reduce the company’s costs. But, nevertheless, the functioning of the organization is impossible without the use of human resources, their development in the future. Statistics show that often an ill employee costs the organization much more than the savings on working conditions that many organizations are trying to realize in order to reduce staff costs. The article emphasizes the need to implement a corporate employee health management system, discloses how it can be cost-effective for organizations and useful for employees. In Russian companies, caring for employees, developing corporate policy as a strategy for the future has not yet become widespread. Many are looking for benefits in reducing the number of employees, in reducing wages, in making temporary employees, in the effectiveness of managerial decisions. Objectively, companies want instant results without long-term and mixed investments. According to Rosstat, in Russia, about 30% of the employees of all the companies surveyed work in conditions that simply do not meet sanitary and hygienic requirements. Meanwhile, in foreign countries, health management programs are reaching a new, progressive level, which includes not only improving working conditions, but also holding Health Days, changing the lifestyle of employees (promoting a healthy lifestyle, adjusting nutrition programs, increasing physical activity, etc.), as well as regular monitoring and health monitoring of employees. The main research methods were: review method, which allows to obtain accessible and complete information on the topic of the article; cross-cultural analysis used to compare the attitude of employers to the health of employees in Russia and abroad and to identify the degree of similarity and difference in the modality of health values in different countries, as well as a method of secondary analysis of the results of sociological studies on the topic of research.
