The idea of focusing on employees' overall wellness is not new to the 21st century. According to Gainer in History of ergonomics and occupational therapy (2008), the idea of workplace wellness began with Bernardini Ramazzini, an Italian physician, in the 1600's. Ramazzini focused on the effects of work exposure on the employees and was interested in preventative measures to improve employee well being.
