People must be healthy in all of these areas in order to achieve wellness. This is not an easy task for an adult but definitely not for children.

Satisfied employees are more productive. Discuss this statement critically, drawing on theory and research. - ... Inconsistency in the workplace encourages dissatisfaction and the displeasure of other employees as it affects workload. A complacent employee is a problematic employee. They are so comfortable in their role they begin to not tolerate change. To be satisfied you have to appreciate your working conditions. Having become satisfied in these conditions, they react negatively to any imposed changes by either staying to the old routine or by not allowing this new routine to integrate properly. This is damaging to the company; because these implementations would have been introduced to improve the workplace, to accommodate and integrate technological development for example, and by these employees rejecting or prolonging the integration of these phases, it actually harms individual and collective productivity....   [tags: business, job satisfaction]
