Abstract: The number of outside vendors that provide health enhancement services in the workplace has increased dramatically with the demand. Recent estimates indicate there are more than 300 stress management vendors alone. Although this proliferation of worksite health enhancement offerings is a positive trend, it has led to some legitimate concerns over the quality of these offerings. For example, some entrepreneurs in their quick response to marketplace demands, promoted deficient programs along with quality health enhancement services. The failure of an inadequate program can reflect negatively on the overall acceptance of quality services.
