“Elton Mayo, a psychologist, developed the Human Relations Theory. It developed as a response to the Scientific Management Theory. Mayo believed that humans are complex beings who have unique needs and expectations. Multiple factors influence employee motivation and workplace behavior. Organizations need to focus on social and psychological needs as well. In addition to monetary incentives, healthy group dynamics and recognition of efforts are essential in driving workplace productivity.”  (Harappa, 2021).

Employee receives support and flexibility “Our thoughts (cognitions) need to be consistent with our feelings (affective), and these need to line up without behavioral intentions” (Scandura, 2018).

In this study Walmart has provided a path that can lead to numerous future avenues. They have provided a program in which employees that work at Walmart can gain a paycheck as well as a degree or certification. Gaining skill trades as well as digital certificates through online courses from eCornell, Penn Foster and Southern New Hampshire University while they are employed at Walmart with not catches. Meaning if they decide that they no longer want to work at Walmart they may look elsewhere. All at a price of mostly a dollar a day. This is truly a motivation concept and is relevant because employees are given the opportunity to have a paycheck and attain credentials for their future at almost nothing.  This program in which Walmart calls Live Better U (LBU) helps develop and prime future employees for Walmart and at the same time assist people in their endeavors. People always what to know what you can do for them, and this program shows Walmart employees, “This is what we can do for you”.  Programs like this can improve motivation as well improve the attitudes of the employees and leadership throughout the
company.

An in-depth survey is conducted on the topic of employee health and well-being. However, wellness program evaluations are often used to support the description of effective health promotion factors in the literature. Employer health-promoting characteristics of an organization that is not part of a health promotion program are seen as less significant. With this paper, the authors want to enlighten policymakers about optimal practices in health promotion while also providing real-world examples of workplace health promotion. Employee psychological requirements were identified as a crucial aspect in the overall well-being of workers by those who worked in organizations with supportive organizational cultures. A healthy work environment is characterized by several factors, some of which include respectful personal interactions, employee engagement, flexible work schedules, and appropriate communication. As the obesity epidemic, the incidence of chronic illnesses, and health literacy continue to grow in the United States, Walmart recognizes the growing need for and lack of understanding in this area. After realizing that health care would account for approximately 20 percent of the United States’ gross domestic product by 2020, the company sees this as a chance to make a difference in health care while also appealing to the 150 million consumers that visit its shops each week. In order to change people’s perceptions of retail healthcare, Walmart is bringing together the broad range of Health & Wellness products and services that they already provide (for example, pharmacies, hospitalization, DME, immunizations) while also expanding into new initiatives and goods that are focused on their customers’ needs (for example health insurance) (e.g., patient testing, medical aid, and patient education resources). As a consequence of a wide range of past studies, the findings presented in this article are considered accurate.
