Rex Miller is a consultant, speaker, and the author of “The Healthy Workplace Nudge: How Healthy People, Culture, and Buildings Lead to High Performance”. Rex and his team draw from research from more than 100 corporate leaders and experts over a two-year project to discover the root problem with workplace wellness programs and suggests how organizations can improve them.
Organizations currently face growing health costs that are expected to continue to grow in the coming decade. Companies spend an average of $12,000 per employee on health benefits, while other hidden costs such as absenteeism, disengagement, and turnover cost businesses an estimated $1.2 trillion a year. Rex uncovers how the built environment and physical space has a dramatic effect on the overall stress management of the workplace, and that medical science and building science have connected to form healthier environments.
