March 9 – Meeting Resource
The March 9th meeting of the Michigan Wellness Council featured the presentation Workplace Culture of Health and Why it Matters by Mary Marzec, PhD Senior Researcher, Health Management Research Center, University of Michigan.
The presentation centered on the idea that having a workplace culture that supports people’s health is really about having a culture that supports the people that work there every day. Focusing on employee health has a higher order benefit for the organization because it is fundamental to people’s ability to function. The perspective of a culture of health extends beyond wellness programs to the many factors of an organization that impact people.
