Are Workplace Wellness Ph.D. Experts For Real?

Really, who are these people? They dominate the seminar podiums and the Webinar world. They tell us the rules of the wellness road as they’ve established those rules. They use words and phrases like scientific evidence, ROI, HRA, achievable outcomes, risk factors, incentives, and best practice standards.

They throw mind-boggling numbers around like Frisbees®. They talk about wellness like it was an early 20th century assembly line. And they define the phrase “comprehensive wellness program” for us. I suppose that’s just in case we’re thinking of hiring a Carnival Barker or Snake Oil Salesman to advise us on healthful living?
