Built to Thrive Book

This book is the product of the Interdisciplinary Center for Healthy Workplaces’ (ICHW) inaugural Science to Practice conference in 2017 titled, “How to Build the Best Workplaces for Health and Well-Being.” In the conference, we brought together experts from different disciplines and from both research and practice to attempt to address the gaps in knowledge.

Finding Fit Employer Guide: Implementing Wellness Programs Successfully

The Interdisciplinary Center for Healthy Workplaces (ICHW) has developed an Employer Guide that will enable organizations (with an emphasis on small and medium-sized) to find a workplace wellness program that fits their specific constraints. This Guide provides background information and an assessment tool for employers to select a wellness program that provides the best match. It also contains a resource page that directs readers to low- to no-cost options for different aspects of employee wellness.

Finding Fit Assessment Tool

This assessment will help you decide which wellness program you should introduce to your organization by identifying your organization’s current resources (Facilitators) and constraints (Barriers). It is intended for leadership but can be used by any employee and will take approximately 15-20 minutes.
