I would list the "new" topic chapters to be:
* Building a Culture of Health
* What Positive Psychology Offers
* Satisfied Employees and the Bottom Line
* Leaders as Change Agents
This is unfortunate, as I see the "new" topics as being topics about which the worksite wellness community needs more comprehensive information.
While this book may have disappointed me, it is still well written, well researched and documented and will serve as a great resource for beginning worksite wellness coordinators. It is clearly deserving of the four star rating I gave it. The five questions found at the end of each chapter are clearly worth both beginner and seasoned veteran alike contemplating and answering.
If you are new to the worksite wellness community and process, I think you will find the book to be a helpful resource for you and your organization as you begin your worksite wellness journey. If you are a seasoned veteran already familiar with the worksite wellness literature, this book will serve as a good "big picture" refresher for you.
The Success Gallery component found in each chapter is a nice added feature. The Success Gallery reflects the personal stories of employees who have made successful lifestyle changes.
* 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.
Dr. Rose Gantner's book Workplace Wellness is a winner! It is an intelligent, resourceful, easy-to-read, balanced look at employee and corporate health. She outlines key areas that leaders need to look at in order to create programs that support sustained overall health. No cookie-cutter approach, she encourages each workplace to look at its workforce and examine its own readiness for effective and sustained behavior change.
Dr. Gantner not only provides scientific research but provides real-world examples and real-world suggestions. She uses the acronym HEART (Health, Engagement, Action, Resilience, Teamwork) as a way to understand and create lasting change. In her "Success Gallery" sections, she offers real-world examples of achievements. Of particular interest is that Dr. Gantner suggests in her writing an entire paradigm shift which includes positivity, resilience and engagement. She looks at what satisfied employees bring to the "bottom line."
Our human capital is important and providing an entire program and culture to improve health in the workplace is not only a win-win for the workplace but a win-win for society! I highly recommend this wonderful book on Workplace Wellness as it is filled with practical ideas and suggestions and numerous resources---it should be on the top list for any leader in an organization!

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.
