Hello,

There are a couple of options for you.

1.  The business perspective – If you want the business perspective, I would use the Business Source Premier database and just search corporate wellness programs.  That yielded articles like this one –

Berry, L. L., Mirabito, A. M., & Baun, W. B. (2010). What's the Hard Return On Employee Wellness Programs?. Harvard Business Review, 88(12), 104-112.

Business Source Premier is available from the library's top database list at

2.  The psychology perspective – If you want the psychological perspective, I would use the PsycInfo database.  It is also on the library's top database list.  There I would search for "employee assistance programs" and "health promotion" – on separate search lines.  You get articles like this one –

Kumar, S., McCalla, M., & Lybeck, E. (2009). Operational impact of employee wellness programs: A business case study. International Journal Of Productivity And Performance Management, 58(6), 581-597. doi:10.1108/17410400910977109

3.  The health perspective – If you're looking at it from the health care side, then I would use the Health Source Nursing Academic database.  The link for it is on the library's longer list of databases at

http://libguides.unomaha.edu.leo.lib.unomaha.edu/content.php?pid=112019&sid=843493

In this database, use the phrase employee health promotion.  It finds articles like this one

Ickes, M., & Sharma, M. (2009). WORKSITE HEALTH PROMOTION: A PRACTICAL STRATEGY FOR OBESITY PREVENTION. American Journal Of Health Studies, 24(3), 343-352.

Hope this helps.  If you need more assistance, please let us know.
