Individual employee wellness is proven to have both positive effects on an organization’s well-being. Successful implementation of a high performance corporate wellness program improves employee and organization wellness. Literature from case studies, extensive global surveys, as well as organizational observations demonstrates that wellness programs do play a functional role in improving employee and organizational wellness. The research proposed is to leverage secondary research to develop an integrated wellness program model that may be applied to organizations including considerations for global locations. The quantitative and qualitative orientations of the research will follow a linear path emphasizing objectivity of observations and strategic interviews with corporate operations and human resources with Eli Lilly and Company. The research methods will include the review of existing demographic wellness data from the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index® survey results the intent to demonstrate integrity and validity. Overall, the intent is to leverage secondary research and primary observations to develop key concepts and a comprehensive, integrated, multi-element corporate wellness model that may be applied in part or as a whole for global organizations.
