A workplace wellness accreditation program established in 2006, the CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ is the first initiative championed by the CEO Roundtable on Cancer. Private, non-profit and government employers in diverse industries have earned Gold Standard accreditation, including the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the federal government's principal agency for cancer research and training.
The Gold Standard's mission focuses on three goals with regard to cancer:
- Risk reduction
- Early detection
- Quality care
By focusing on these three goals, the Gold Standard program can assist employers in implementing a culture of wellness in their workplaces, helping to promote the health and well-being of their employees and save lives.
