Now Available on NetGalley: THE HEALTHY WORKPLACE

Cover art for The Healthy Workplace by Leigh Stringer We talk about health more than ever nowadays, but how healthy can a person be when spending eight hours a day (let’s be real–probably more!) at a desk? The best employers know that employee health is in their hands–and that employee health plays a big role in the health of their businesses. THE HEALTHY WORKPLACE: How to Improve the Well-Being of Your Employees—and Boost Your Company’s Bottom Line by Leigh Stringer takes on workplace wellness and provides solutions for managers reconsidering their team policies, for HR departments seeking innovative health-related employee benefits and incentives, and for executives choosing company-wide strategies and even office designs that prioritize health. Journalists, booksellers, book reviewers, librarians, and media professionals interested in health and workplace wellness are invited to request The Healthy Workplace for review.

When employees thrive, the company thrives.

Is your workplace working for you and your employees? Studies show that unhealthy work habits, like staring at computer screens and rushing through fast-food lunches are taking their toll in the form of increased absenteeism, lost productivity, and higher insurance costs—but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Companies such as Google, Apple, Aetna, and Johnson & Johnson have used innovative techniques to incorporate healthy habits and practices into the workday and into their culture—with impressive ROI. Packed with real-life examples and the latest research, The Healthy Workplace proves that it pays to invest in your people’s well-being and reveals how to:

Create a healthier, more energizing environment • Reduce stress to enhance concentration • Inspire movement at work • Use choice architecture to encourage beneficial behaviors • Support better sleep • Heighten productivity without adding hours to the workday

Filled with tips for immediate improvement and guidelines for building a long-term plan, The Healthy Workplace will boost both employee well-being and the bottom line.

LEIGH STRINGER is Senior Workplace Expert for EYP Architecture & Engineering and is researching employee health and productivity in conjunction with the Harvard School of Public Health, the Center for Active Design, and other leading organizations.
