blt01.gif Our Ambition

Every day, more than 3 billion people around the world go to work. In a lifetime, the average person will spend at least 90,000 hours working. Employees are every company’s greatest asset and they need to be healthy and secure in order to be motivated, engaged, and productive at work. The global workplace wellness market is estimated by the Global Wellness Institute to be at $48.5 billion in 2020. Employers around the world are beginning to adopt a more holistic approach that encompasses company culture, hierarchy, leadership style, workflow, and built environment, to improve morale, retention, and recruitment; and increase productivity and competitiveness.

Working with an active research group gives students the opportunity to put book knowledge to work in a more 'real world' research setting. You build on the work of others, collaborate with others, gather and interpret data, and present the results for peer review and feedback.
