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
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.
