Corporate Wellness Question and Answer Assignment

One of the potential jobs you could have someday is working as a Certified Worksite Wellness Specialist for a large corporate organization. Corporate Wellness Practitioners or Certified Worksite Wellness Specialists work at organizations to assess, analyze, and improve the health of an organization’s employees. Employee wellness programs have been shown to have many benefits for the employee and employer.  Employees spend 36% (or more) of their time on the job (Texas Department of State Health Services (Links to an external site.), n.d.). Employees who participate in wellness programs can improve their physical and mental health, boost morale at work, and reduce stress, absenteeism, and healthcare costs. Therefore, the organizations’ cultural climate and productivity are improved as well (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2013).
