THE WORKPLACE GARDEN: REDEFINING THE SOCIAL CONTRACT, 50min., USA, Documentary
Directed by Daniel Gartzke
If there is one thing that nearly all Americans do - it’s work. We spend nearly 90,00 hours of our life doing it - and in many scenarios, that experience can be stressful, mentally and emotionally taxing, or may even lead to depression. Fortunately, the modern landscape of corporate culture carries numerous leaders and role models whom trail blaze a path for all employees to find true health and happiness at their jobs. Modern corporate wellness programs are proven to improve employee behaviors, reduce elevated health risks, reduce health care costs, improve productivity, and even decrease absenteeism. These factors each can correlate directly to a happier relationship between the employee and employer. With the possibilities to create a better life for those they serve presented to them, perhaps employers around the country will adopt these essential programs.
