Women As Health Care Decision Makers
Research shows the critical role women play as the “Health Care Decision Makers” for their families and others they care for. Women are deciding which medicines to take, health treatments to follow and doctors to see, and how to live a healthy lifestyle. When we consider these findings, we see an opportunity to improve how we think about and engage with women as primary health care decision makers. This is where working with a woman owned business can give workplace wellness programs an edge for engagement.
It is widely recognized that women make 80% of the consumer decisions and influence the other 20%. Major corporations have gained insight into the value of having vendor bases that resemble their customers. This provides corporations with a deeper understanding of consumers. It can drive market penetration. This can improve brand positioning and develop a positive public relationship image.
