Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v109 n1 p34-42 Win 2017
Organizations are increasingly interested in improving the personal wellness of employees. The purpose of this qualitative study was to explore perceptions of wellness and workplace influences among a diverse sample of employees (n = 22) in three Maryland industries. Data were collected using focus group methodology and integrating human needs theory as well as a wellness model. Findings supported the conceptual framework, however, data also emerged suggesting the importance of supportive work environments as well as the influence of workplace practices and strategies that may positively influence personal wellness.
