Workplace Wellness as a Career

Sep 28, 2016 07:45PM
Workplace wellness is a growing area of health promotion that fosters healthy behavior change within the workplace. Maryland University of Integrative Health is hosting a free, online webinar, Workplace Wellness: Developing a Culture of Health, from 7 to 8 p.m. on October 17. All who are interested in learning more about working as a health promotion specialist in the workplace are encouraged to join the discussion.

Organizations of all sizes 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. The webinar speaker will be Rebecca Pille, Ph.D. (Candidate), M.S., CWP, who is a recognized leader in the field of health promotion and workplace wellness within the federal government. She has directed all aspects of her agency’s Health Promotion and Wellness department, to include managing a staff of clinical and administrative personnel and overseeing an annual budget for delivering holistic health programs and services worldwide.
