Occupational Wellness is about finding gratification and enrichment in one’s career. It involves balancing work and leisure time, participating in professional development activities, and making decisions that foster a positive work environment.

Why is Occupational Wellness Important?
When an individual is satisfied with their career path, they may experience increased job satisfaction, enhanced proficiency and productivity, higher commitment, and elevations in energy and enthusiasm. Careers that are consistent with one’s personal values, passions and beliefs are often more rewarding than those that are not.
