In this article the author discusses a study on the workplace health promotion (WHP) programs at 10 companies including Johnson & Johnson in the U.S. The author asserts that in the study all of the companies have WHP programs which emphasize whole-person wellness and include not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual. He claims that the study suggests a relation between the health programs and lower health risks, lower health care use, and improved labor productivity.
