Familial Level

When the employees’ personal physical health and wellness has been stabilized, they move to the next level in the physical module of the PIES model–the mezzo level–which deals with the family.

Here, the employees have been given enough education and training on physical health, safety, security, and geographic mobility and they can begin to provide for and/or assist with these things for their family members. The movement out to this layer of the model builds confidence and pride in knowing that not only can they provide for their own needs, but also those of their family members.
