My family and I embrace a wellness lifestyle. Our wish for everyone would be to experience a full, holistic life of great health. In fact, we turned that passion into a business idea more than 30 years ago. Although our business has been successful, the mission is still incomplete. The citizens of our nation are in poor health, and there’s not a scalable solution to solve that problem in sight.
Still, I am an optimist. Some very good and unique ideas are out there. If you’d like a glimpse of the future of workplace health, check out Jon Robison, PhD, and Rosie Ward, PhD. Full disclosure here: We’re going to publish an upcoming book the two are working on. Their ideas are born of experience and get to the core issues of how to build healthy organizations.
For now, we have to take stock of the workplace wellness situation as it is.
