A new initiative in the Indiana Chamber of Commerce is aimed at creating a healthy state. It's part of their new plan for this year.

Chamber executives focus on overall wellness of employees around Indiana.

Kevin Brinegar says the chamber will focus on four critical areas. Those include attracting talent, a healthy business climate, a creative culture, and good infrastructure, "Get them focused on how they can help their employees become more healthy which will positively impact healthcare costs and our competitive position because Indiana as a whole tends to be a less healthy state."

Last year's goals surrounded work force development.
