Wellness vs. Well-Being 17. Februar 2013
Von William McPeck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
As a specialist in worksite wellness, my thinking has evolved over the past couple of years to the point where I believe the field needs to encompass a broader concept, what I call worksite well-being programs. Needless to say, I was very pleased when I came across this book's title recently. I was surprised to learn though that the book was published in 2011 and I had not heard about it before now.

The book consists of 18 chapters divided into 5 parts:
- Why Well-Being Matters?
- What is Well-Being?
- What Influences Well-Being?
- Getting the Benefits
- Case Studies

Both of the authors are psychologists, academics and founding partners in a UK consultancy that bears their names. I found the book to be well written, not too heavily footnoted and containing an adequate list of resources for conducting further reading and study if you want to dig deeper into any of the concepts cited, which I do.

The authors being from the UK heavily slants the book towards a UK perspective, but this in no way detracts from the book's message, value, worth and the benefits it delivers.

The authors consider well-being to consist of three main parts or domains:
- Physical
- Social
- Psychological

Given the author's training as psychologists, it should come as no surprise to you that the focus of the book is PWB, or psychological well-being. Again, this is not a detractor to the book, only requiring the reader to go elsewhere to fill out their understanding of all the domains in the well-being model.

I believe the book does a great job of pulling the literature together and putting forth a solid, substantial picture of why psychological well-being matters, what psychological well-being is, what influences psychological well-being and identifying the benefits of psychological well-being.

Unfortunately, I think the book falls down in the Case Study section. After reading the foundational section of the book, I was so looking forward to seeing how employers had implemented PWB in their workplaces. Much to my disappointment, of the 9 case studies presented, 5 were about worksite wellness interventions. The remaining 4 case studies were helpful to me. I just wish the other 5 were just like them. Maybe they don't yet exist.

If you have anything to do with worksite wellness, employee well-being or employee engagement, I believe this book will be worth the read.
