Workplace wellness is a burgeoning area of health promotion that focuses on driving healthy behavior change within the workplace. Organizations large and small are beginning to realize the value in promoting health among their employees both from a cultural perspective as well as bottom-line standpoint. Analysis shows that employees who partake in healthy lifestyles are more productive and that workplace wellness initiatives have the capacity to reduce absenteeism as well as presenteeism, improve employee morale, and potentially reduce healthcare costs for organizations over the long term. With this increased growth and recognition of the inherent value of wellness in the workplace, health promotion specialists are in high demand, tasked to implement and execute effective, outcomes-based wellness programming in organizations seeking to leverage the benefits of a healthier, happier workforce.
This webinar will provide a framework and case study examples of strategic wellness initiatives that give insight into the work that health promotion specialists will be challenged to accomplish in their prospective careers.
