Although most wellness experts agree that productivity is affected by the health of employees, most of their solutions to improve wellness continue to be disconnected from the cultural language of organizations, and are mostly focused on external factors such as incentives to improve lifestyles. Health management models fail to provide a methodology that can maximize Collaborative Wellness in the process of reaching productivity objectives.
The Empowerment Code offers a unique organizational language of wellness and producitivity. In our model, wellness (mental, physical and spiritual health) and productivity (parsimonious function) are viewed as an inseparable unfolding process. Strategies to address business goals and challenges are navigated focusing on three interrelated variables: effectiveness, efficiency, and wellness. Our Empowerment program is the first, worldwide, to apply combined principles of neuroscience, Psychoneuroimmunology and cultural anthropology to business organizations.
Drawing from these evidence-based disciplines, we developed a strategy to evaluate how the language of a corporate culture affects initiative, creativity, and health. Rather than viewing wellness and productivity as separate components externally controlled by incentives, we address them as an inseparable fabric internally controlled by the values communicated within an organizational culture.
