    What keeps the CEO of the nation's largest pediatric hospital up at night?
    The Huffington Post
    Texas Children's Hospital CEO Mark A. Wallace writes: "More than anything else, it is the employees — the people who are the face of Texas Children's Hospital — who I think about. Is Texas Children's providing an environment and culture of support? Am I helping to nurture our employees' growth by providing them the tools and opportunities they need to carry out their ideas and visions to the greatest extent of their capabilities and talents? Great organizations, responsible organizations, invest in their people by developing and maintaining a robust infrastructure of programs and benefits that meet the personal and professional needs of employees, enabling them to thrive. "

    Workplace violence prevention training deemed essential for teen employees
    HR.BLR
    Large numbers of teenagers face violence or threats of violence and sexual assault on the job. An OSHA-funded peer education program seeks to give these young workers the tools and understanding to reduce the risks. Noting in his DOL blog that "young workers are often among the most vulnerable members of our nation's workforce," OSHA Administrator Dr. David Michaels calls the program "a unique opportunity to reach out to young workers with life-saving information."

    UK employers focus on employees' mental well-being
    Employee Benefits
    An EAP can benefit staff, particularly those who don't feel comfortable taking about their well-being with colleagues. Promoting initiatives effectively is also important. Capita Health and Wellbeing analyzed data on more than 3,500 employees who used counseling and advice services through an EAP in 2013. Before using the EAP, 51 percent were having difficulty coping at work, but only 5 percent felt the same after using it.

    Emotional well-being a bottom line issue for organizational success
    HR.BLR
    Today workers are experiencing a global assault on physical, social, and cognitive well-being. Worldwide, rates of heart and lung diseases, as well as diabetes and obesity, are rising sharply. We are cognitively overloaded and distracted by new technologies, multitasking from email to social media. At the same time, stress has become a global epidemic costing $300 billion annually. So it's clearer than ever before that organizations need to approach physical, cognitive, and emotional wellbeing not just as an employee issue, but as a bottom-line issue for organizational success.

    Do workplace wellness initiatives go far enough?
    Today's Facility Manager
    Good news: America's workers, by a 2 to 1 margin, believe their employer "cares about my health." Bad news: These employees often lack resources that can actually improve their health, such as weight management programs, exercise classes, company-run health/ wellness programs, on-site fitness equipment, health coaches, or healthy food options.
