THE EVOLVING LANDSCAPE
“Workplace wellness”, “corporate wellness”, and “employee wellness”, have generally come to be associated with programs, policies, benefits, and environmental supports that are designed to improve employees’ physical health and safety at work. They may include: physical activity, healthy nutrition, stress management, awareness-oriented programs and participatory activities.
Well-being expands the view of wellness to more than just a focus on the physical body. Well-being also focuses on employees’ mental and emotional states, which influence their productivity and ability to perform at their peak, their capabilities, financial health, social networks and relationships.
Employee Experience and Engagement
Employee experience and engagement recognizes the integrative nature of the full employee experience and journey through the workplace from hire to retire. Employee experience affects daily life in and outside the workplace. Employee engagement is the level of an employee’s psychological investment in their organization as characterized by the experience they have.
