During emergencies, stakeholder engagement and communication is critical to instilling confidence, improving coordination and supporting actions that can help protect safety.

Regular, clear communication about the emergency preparedness and response strategies being utilized by an owner or operator of a space to support people’s health and safety, as well as how stakeholders can build awareness of what to do during an emergency event, provides critical information that supports the health and well-being of all occupants.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), the nation's leading biomedical and health research organization, maintains a health-orientated mission for the nation and its employees.

The mission of the NIH is: To seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability.

The NIH, NIEHS and federal government believe in investing in employees through health benefits, employee recreation and mental/physical health support programs.

This feature guide, along with information on the NIEHS Junction intranet highlight those pro-grams and features which promote employee health and wellness.

Communication with employees is foundational to the NIEHS health and wellness mission. Quarterly directors all-hands are held to provide information to employees as well as open the floor for questions and answers. A directors suggestion box is available for use on the Junction. During the COVID-19 pandemic, employees received weekly updates from both the NIH and NIEHS director. The NIEHS director holds monthly COVID related all-hands in addition to the normally scheduled quarterly meetings.
