TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Indiana ranks 47th in the nation when it comes to employee well-being.

That's why Tippecanoe County department heads are going through training to improve that statistic.

Paradigm Health and Wellness will host the program in workspaces like Matchbox Studios in Lafayette.

Executive Director Kristin Stapleton says well-being is much more than physical health.

It's actually a perception of how healthy, happy and successful you feel.

She says 40 percent of our happiness comes from perception, 50 from genetics and 10 percent is a result of our environment.

"What that tells me is that we are in control. We have the power to change this and change this for the leaders of our community. This curriculum is really about putting them first," said Stapleton.

Stapleton says companies should concentrate on developing each individual and making sure they feel like they are a part of the company's success story.

"That is what your employees want to be a part of. It's no longer that we offer decent pay and great benefits. We have to give them something different. We have to pull them into a bigger story," said Stapelton.

Tippecanoe County department heads will go through this training once a month starting early next year.
