Abstract

The case discusses the increasing importance given to the health and wellness programme (HWP) by corporates in order to limit the rising health care costs of employees. The case describes in detail the components of HWP, introduced by the pharma major, Johnson and Johnson (J&J). The case provides detailed information about how J&J went about implementing the HWP, the initial hurdles faced and the benefits reaped after the implementation. The case also talks about the initiatives taken by J&J to significantly enhance the health and well-being of its employees in the new millennium. This case is structured to enable students to: (1) recognise the concept of HWP and the growing need for implementing HWP for corporates; (2) understand the tangible and intangible benefits reaped by implementing HWP; (3) identify the areas and business sectors/organisations where HWP is necessary to improve the mental and physical health of employees; (4) understand how HWP can provide a significant difference to an organisation by way of appreciable growth in employee morale and productivity; and (5) study the components of a health and wellness programme and the strategy for its implementation and success. The case is targeted at MBA/PGDBA students as part of the human resource management and organisational behaviour curriculum. The teaching note does not contain an analysis of the case.
