Student research paper


The following is a professional and educational experiment project designed to highlight the importance of wellness and self care for service industry employees. This project is an experiment to see what tools we can implement as service industry employees to reduce stress levels and take better care of ourselves, together. I used my own place of work (small town mom and pop business) and encouraged employees to participate in my case study as a means to address their own wellbeing, establish stress reduction techniques, make a positive change within our company’s culture, and create a more supportive work environment. Below I will describe the process of establishing a wellness system and innovative resources for employees to utilize to improve overall well being and performance.
