He also works with the Center for Workforce and Organizational Development at SLU to oversee assessment and consultation services for client organizations and leads research and analytic efforts at the school. Dr. Grawitch conducts most of his research in the areas of stress and the healthy workplace and currently serves as the primary research consultant to APA for its Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program.

The Center houses APA's Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program (PHWP), a public education initiative designed to engage the employer community, raise public awareness about the value psychology brings to the workplace, and promote programs and policies that enhance employee well-being and organizational performance. The PHWP includes APA's Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards; support of local programs currently implemented by 56 state, provincial, and territorial psychological associations; and a variety of resources for employers and the psychologists who work with them. Dr. Ballard has provided research, consultation, and training services to government agencies, corporations, medical schools, and universities in the areas of workplace health and productivity, public health, prevention, and health care finance and has experience in management, marketing, and consumer research. He is currently on the board of directors of The Health Project/C. Everett Koop National Health Awards.
