Enhancing the Quality of Life in the Workplace

According to the Centers for Disease Control & Occupational Safety & Health, 300 billion dollars ($7500 on average per employee) is spent annually in the U.S on stress related compensation claims, reduced productivity, absenteeism, health insurance costs, direct medical expenses and turnover.

As wellness becomes a core component of corporate operational business plans, more organizations are implementing wellness programs. In an era of unsustainable health care costs, mutual accountability for employee well-being is becoming a rapidly growing model.

The Building Resiliency – Four Rooms of Wellness Program is not a typical fitness or stress-reduction program. This program is designed to connect employees with the personal values that drive their own self-care. Because most people do not change habits based solely on information, this program helps to provide employees with an experience of their own power to change behavior.

This program is built on the premise that well-being is a natural state and that everyone has the potential to achieve and sustain it. Using the latest research from behavioral neuroscience, the program gives participants practical tools to embed new habits.

Building Resiliency – The Four Rooms of Wellness Program is comprised of six modules:

  • What is Wellness? Exploring the values that drive a sense of well-being and how to align them with daily behavioral actions
  • Room 1 The Mental Room – This module is based on the knowledge that thought is at the root of every action, regardless
    of external events.
  • Room 2 The Emotional Room – This model is based on the recent science that demonstrates the critical link between emotions and physical health. Tools for responding mindfully to emotional triggers are part of this module.
  • Room 3 The Physical Room – This model introduces the basic concepts of the mind-body relationship and its impact on
    sustaining wellness.
  • Room 4 The Spirit Room – This module is based on the broad concept of how our “spirit” expresses our deepest values and internal life. This room’s work is premised on the belief that work life can benefit from greater expression of our values, passion and creativity. Studies show that work combined with these perspectives and feelings lowers stress and combats fatigue and depression.Note: The dialogue and activities of this module are not focused on religion
  • Integration This module helps participants integrate the discoveries and intentions gathered in the four rooms and encourages a sustainable plan of action for implementation into daily routines.
  • The Benefits of this program include:
  • An increased understanding of how mindsets result in behavioral choices and stress
  • Tools for brief mindfulness practice that can be implemented throughout the work day
  • Greater understanding of how to use emotions as a resource for inspiration, motivation and stress reduction.
  • All levels of the organization can benefit from this program; however the program can be tailored to address specific needs and experience. Participants use their real work-life issues – to learn and practice the framework of this program.This program is designed as a 1 day program.
