Happy Wassailing – from the English phrase wæs hæl, meaning literally ‘good health’ or ‘be you healthy’.
A company’s business strategy is its game plan for success. Decision makers determine what they want to achieve and then how they will make it happen.
Many times, companies only think outwardly when they develop their business strategy. They focus solely on the customers or clients, the market conditions, and how to persuade people to buy their products or services. Crucial components for any company, yes, but not the only business strategy considerations.
Companies also need to look inwardly — at their culture. A corporate culture describes an organization’s attitudes, experiences, beliefs, and values. When companies promote a healthy workplace culture that fosters healthy living – physically and emotionally – they can realize more innovation, higher productivity, and superior quality from their workforce. The results of this culture can positively impact a company’s external goals.
Business strategy and corporate culture go hand in hand. Consider both and align them to help ensure your company’s success.
To learn more about how a healthy culture creates a healthy bottom line you should attend the Human Resources Professionals meeting on July 20th. Please click on the following link to register for this free event.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), includes provisions intended to boost employer-provided wellness programs and make them more widespread to help increase the overall health of the population.
The PPACA provisions include a government-funded grant program to assist small businesses in providing comprehensive workplace wellness programs.
Grants will be awarded to eligible employers to provide their employees with access to new workplace wellness initiatives. The grants will be awarded beginning in 2011 with $200 million appropriated for a five-year period. Criteria for a Comprehensive Workplace Wellness Program will include evidence-based best practices including, but not limited to, awareness and behavior change initiatives, incentives, and supportive environment efforts.
As this opportunity approaches, it is critical to apprise yourself and your organization of the details of the government grant funding beginning in 2011.
