The concept of wellness in the workplace is relatively new and many companies are actively creating wellness programs to improve the lives of their employees. However, the exact definition of wellness remains unclear and inconsistent across organizations. Global research conducted by The O.C. Tanner Institute helps establish a definition of employee wellbeing. This paper explains the large benefits in store for companies that are able to improve their employees’ wellbeing and explores why this trend is relevant in the workplace today. It describes, in detail, what companies can do to improve the large portion of life spent at work and, more specifically, investigates how the benefits and perks currently offered at work impact wellbeing and where they fall short.
