  4. CDC Health Promotion Resources. Having assessed your organization by using the Workplace Health Promotion Model’s four dimensions, you should have a better understanding of how well it is promoting worksite health and wellness. Based on your findings, answer the following questions:
    1. Go to the CDC Workplace Health Promotion Strategies web page. Select one of the Workplace Health Strategies by Condition as the next HR strategy item for the company. Provide an explanation for why that strategy was selected and what is hoped to be achieved by implementing the strategy.

The National Wellness Institute (NWI) has created a wellness model, identifying six dimensions: spiritual, intellectual, emotional, occupational, physical, and social. When looking on the Internet, you will likely find other models of wellness. There are some studies that have extended the dimensions to eight or more, with many also including financial wellness and environmental wellness. The aim of this section is for you to expand your understanding of what it means to promote holistic health in the workplace. Complete the following, answering the questions in one or two paragraphs.
    1. Download and read The Six Dimensions of Wellness Model article.
    2. Determine if your organization promotes workplace health holistically—using six or more dimensions of wellness. If so, explain. If not, what improvements need to be made?
    3. For the spirituality dimension of wellness, locate a scholarly article/peer-reviewed article from OCLS. Identify how spirituality wellness may be better addressed in the selected organization.
