For this week assignment the first article titled workplace wellness program could be putting your health data at risk by Ajunwa is intended for employees or workers who do know that some of their health data collected by their employers as part of their workplace wellness programs can put them at risk. There are some health data collected by vendors through the wellness programs in the workplace can be compromised by data breaches that can occur throughout the collection process. The article in the Harvard Business Review is reviewed by peers. The author of this article is an expert in health program in the workplace. This article focuses on wellness program at work which makes it to understand.
My second article I chose to read was written by Hancock. This article is titled Workplace wellness programs put employee privacy at risk targets both the employees and the employers. Hancock explains the privacy laws here in the United States of America doesn’t protect the release of personal health information from employees to marketing companies and data bookers. Both authors use a language that is easy to understand and the message is clear to the audience.
I can honestly say both articles are trustworthy in terms of credibility of two peer reviewed. Both articles were both recently published. Ajunwa’s article is credible because it’s posted on the Harvard Business Review website which is registered with the educational institution. I can confirm that both articles are credible and should be used on the basis of these facts. In my opinion both articles provide us with basic information on the need for employees and employees to protect all employees personal health information. Ajunwa’s article gives us an insight on what an employee should do to avoid personal information being available to other vendors. Hancock explains to us, on how information that is not protected by protection law.
