Praise for Workplace Wellness Dr. Gantner provides insightful direction on how to develop a culture of health inside every American corporation. If you read only one book this year, America, it definitely has to be this one. — Robert Morel CEO, HHI Healthcare Solutions Inc. Simply the best practical guide for workplace wellness success that I have ever seen. Dr. Gantner provides a road map for what to do to maximize performance and productivity as well as a step-by-step plan on how to do it. —Madelyn H. Fernstrom, Ph.D. Professor of Psychiatry, Surgery and Epidemiology Senior Advisor, Health Management University of Pittsburgh Medical Center 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. —Sandy M. York Director of Human Resources, HCA Physician Services This book is a must-read for CEOs, CFOs, HR leaders, benefits managers, and wellness program champions who are charged with improving business results. —John L. Galley VP-HR Operations and Services UPMC Corporate Human Resources Dr. Gantner's person-centric perspective, informed by well-documented research and handy information and tools, makes her work uniquely approachable, engaging, and effective. Michael Parkinson, MD Past President, American College of Preventive Medicine, Senior Medical Director, UPMC Health Plan and WorkPartners Never before has it been important for the U.S. worker to be at a high level of health, both physically and mentally. Congratulations to Dr. Gantner for writing a book that will be of great value in improving the health and productivity of our eight million plus adults who go to work each day. Jerry Noyce President and CEO, HERO- The Health Enhancment Research Organization Book Summary: This book provides a strategic roadmap and the business case for integrated wellness and health management solutions for decreasing spiraling health care costs that are unsustainable in the U.S. Many Americans are not taking personal responsibility for their own health and well-being. Employers, employees and their families have to be on the same winning team to not only increase engagement in evidence-based programs and practices, but to have all parties take accountability to maintain or improve unhealthy behaviors for a more productive, resilient, and competitive workforce. Motivated leaders and consumers can be educated to make the healthiest choices the easiest choices both at work, home and in the communities. People work best when they feel good about themselves and their environment. It is up to senior leaders to provide a safe, supportive, trusting environment where employees feel appreciated, respected, and passionate about their positions and purpose to make a difference. Playing to our strengths and the strengths of others, we can all bring our "A" game to work daily and improve our quality of life. This book demonstrates through case studies, latest research, emerging trends, testimonials, and award winning programs, how individuals, teams, and organizations can thrive to maximize human capital and performance.

5.0 su 5 stelle An invaluable resource for organizational leaders 25 aprile 2012
Di M. Sonnet - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Dr. Gantner has written an invaluable, practical, evidence-based resource for organizational leaders who want to incorporate employee wellness into business strategy.
She makes a compelling case. Most valuably, she shows how to do it, highlighting not only the steps to take but those who have done it. This is essential reading for
the leader who is committed to addressing one of the most important issues of our time, the management of health care expense by employing deliberate integrated efforts to increase both
wellness and productivity in the workplace. Congratulations to Dr. Gantner for writing an accessible blueprint for success!

5.0 su 5 stelle Rose Gantner is a GREAT MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER, too. 27 agosto 2013
Di Alexandra Nolan - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Dr. Rose Gantner is a dynamic, motivational speaker who is right on target in identifying how employers and employees have to partner together to stop health care costs from spiraling further out of control. For those NOT fortunate enough to hear her talk to HR directors, union leaders, and senior management at leading wellness conferences across the country, her book, WORKPLACE WELLNESS: PERFORMANCE WITH A PURPOSE, will be a godsend. It outlines:

* Undeniable statistics that prove how our lifestyle habits are sabotaging our health;
* Socially responsible actions employers can take to support wellness programs for their employees, family members of employees, and local communities;
* Sensible steps for setting up corporate and union teams to motivate employees to take control of their own health;
* How optimism, resilience, and emotional intelligence can be fostered in the workplace;
* How the right wellness programs offered at the right time and with the right support can improve health, raise morale, reduce health care costs, and increase profits. This is the bottom line all of us are willing to tow.

5.0 su 5 stelle Author's Purpose & Passion Shine Through 3 aprile 2012
Di Milana K. Bizic - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
With 30+ years in the workplace fulfilling C-Suite roles for many of the top companies in the USA, Dr. Gantner brings her dedication, energy, enthusiasm, positivity and passion to this book, offering a wide range of strategies and examples from some of our nation's most successful employer programs. Long before readers reach Chapter 6 that focuses on "learning from the best," they will feel the MAGIC of learning from the best, as Gantner gently guides logically, but compassionately on an emotional "HEART" journey....

H-HEALTH to cultivate healthy habits
E-ENGAGEMENT to optimize and sustain behavior changes
A-ACTION to take small steps
R-RESILIENCE to stay connected to life purpose and passion
T-TEAMWORK to achieve maximum success and remain competitive in the global markets.

More so, with the book always nearby, the reader will have a sherpa guide readily available should any further guidance be needed. It speaks directly to what Madelyn Fernstrom says in her praise for the book, "Simply the best practical guide for workplace wellness success that I have ever seen.

Tips, strategies, testimonials, evidence, statistics, FACTS. Best practices, emerging trends and tools too. As a bonus, Gantner also brings knowledge as to how the digital culture is changing the landscape of business, consumerism and the workplace.

Like John Riedel, President of Riedel & Associates Consultants, Inc. says: "Whether you're just getting started on your workplace wellness journey or a seasoned veteran exploring new ways to maximize employee heath, this book has plenty to offer."

I'm sure this book will be a valuable asset to own.

5.0 su 5 stelle Treating Causes, Not Symptoms 27 marzo 2012
Di S. Wachter - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Full disclosure requires that I acknowledge that I had a role in the production of this book--I designed it. However, I had nothing to do with the content, nor will I benefit from book sales in any way. Nor do I write many reviews for the books in which I am involved--it looks odd.

All that said, here's why I'm making an exception in this case: This is a book for our time. The issue of healthcare, who should pay for it, and how to achieve it lies at the heart of a national debate. The central weakness in many of the arguments being used both for and against expanded healthcare coverage for Americans is this: they focus on addressing symptoms, rather than fundamental causes.

Expanding healthcare is, in my opinion, a good idea; offering ways to reduce healthcare expenses by fostering a healthier population is, also in my opinion, a far better one.

And that's one of the things Dr. Gantner's book does: it takes healthcare out of the realm of medicine and places it in the much broader context of our national worklife--and then offers suggestions firmly based in data for ways in which we can cut healthcare costs not by reducing benefits, but by building healthier, happier employees. It's a book about fostering health, rather than correcting illness. A must-read for anyone concerned with employee health, the healthcare debate, and promoting a positive, vigorous workplace.
5.0 su 5 stelle Fills an Important Worksite Wellness Gap 14 marzo 2014
Di Elizabeth P. - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Written by a consummate wellness professional, Workplace Wellness provides important information and links for those who have been in the field for up to five years. I picture it as a handbook for HR professionals who are adding wellness/wellbeing to an already full plate or for wellness professionals who want to expand their programs beyond the basics of nutrition, fitness, and stress management. It would be a good primer to help get an organization's wellness committee up to speed. Dr. Gantner makes a valuable case for the importance of shaping the wellness culture to the culture of the organization if it is to take root. In addition to describing the usual business case arguments for wellness programs, Dr. Gantner points out deeper societal reasons why wellness/wellbeing should become a primary focus. The appendices are helpful and the individual success stories are hopeful.
