Workplace Wellness: Performance with a Purpose provides a strategic roadmap for maximizing business performance and global competitiveness by assisting companies to thrive with a healthy, engaged, focused, and resilient workforce. We decrease health costs not by reducing benefits or making employees pay more for their insurance, but by building a healthier, accountable, and more positive, safe, trusting environment. Then, employers can set realistic expectations of having employees be self-responible and self-determined to improve their own health.
Workplace Wellness is filled with compelling current research, emerging trends, case studies, success stories, interactive exercises, resources, and best practices to begin or strengthen wellness and health management programs. Positive outcomes can impact the population, reduce risks and medical trends, while demonstrating a return on investment. Additionally, effective sustainable engagement strategies are offered.
In this timely and important book, Dr. Gantner identifies the very important connection between healthy employees and operational performance. If you are in any type of leadership role, put this book at the top of your list.

I heard Dr. Gantner had a new book out so I couldn’t wait to read it. I loved the stats, the case studies and how she brought it back to the individual. It was articulate and well planned. And of course, the content is clear and easy to read (without being simplistic). We’ve just purchased 50 copies of her book Workplace Wellness. Our senior team will all get copies and truly understand what a smart, credible source of information she is on the future of the healthcare industry.
