What is corporate naturopathy?
My name is Jeremy Schultz. I am a corporate cog with a natural interest in wellness and the philosophies of naturopathy. In this blog, I am going to endeavor to find out how naturopathy is creeping into the corporate world, or possibly how I can help it to creep in.
Further, I’m going to investigate corporate wellness, which goes by many names, such as employee health, worksite health promotion, and more. In a nutshell, I define corporate wellness as the deployment of programs in the workplace to help employees with health risk identification and wellness improvement. It can range from simply providing online tools and resources for health, to nutritional counseling and coaching, all the way to providing a gym and medical center.
I believe that corporate naturopathy is the logical way that corporations, in particular, should view the health of their employees. The benefits can include both measurable financial savings and immeasurable effects such as reduced absenteeism and more engaged employees. And certainly much more to come!
