Abstract: The operative terms in the article are Health and Productivity. These are defined to ensure comprehension by a mixed audience or readership. The new phenomenon of spiritual component in the definition of health is incorporated. The relationship between health and productivity is emphasized, citing evidence-based realities from the United States. To ensure optimal productivity of the workforce, both workers and employers have a shared responsibility for the workers’ health. Disease prevention and health promotion remain cheaper, surer, and better than the heavy expenses on remedial interventions. In Nigeria, not much of this (safety, prevention and health promotion in the workplace) is strictly observed. There is need to learn from developed economies where the practice of Health and Productivity Management (HPM) is yielding results.
