About the course

People drive every part of business operations, from technology and product design to distribution networks and service delivery. People form the heart of a successful business. Research in the field of employee wellness shows that people who achieve a good standard of well-being at work are likely to be more creative, more loyal, more productive and provide better customer satisfaction. It is therefore imperative for businesses who want to achieve a competitive advantage in their industry to improve the health status and wellness of employees through Employee Wellness Programmes.

The purpose of this Employee Assistance Program is to introduce students to the concept of employee health and wellness, its role in a successful business, wellness policy and procedures, development of an employee wellness programme (i.e. wellness assessment, planning and implementing the programme and measuring programme success), stress management, promotion of healthy nutrition in the workplace, legal frameworks, substance abuse and finally occupational health and safety.
