Abstract

The purpose of the Common Man Employee Wellness Project is to develop a Worksite Wellness Operation Plan to address the need to improve the health and wellness of the Common Man employees. A healthier population through preventative care will decrease the reactive approach of expensive medical costs. The objectives include conducting community based participatory research to assess the health and wellness needs of the Common Man employees, and use this data to inform an operating plan that will guide future wellness programming. Methods of data collection include community forums and individual surveys and are designed to look through the lens of the Socio-Ecological Model. The data analysis will be a thematic approach to analyze the most effective and relevant ways to improve the health and safety of the Common Man employees. The current status of the project is ongoing. The data has been collected and is now being analyzed and coded to create tangible objectives that are based on the research. The implications consist of developing an initial operating plan out of the data collected with the overall goal to improve the health and wellness of the Common Man Employees.
