Topic: Evolving Your Wellness Strategy to Impact Culture & Employee Engagement

Learning Objectives:

  1. Better understand how HR can play a role in helping an organization effectively implement a meaningful wellbeing strategy to positively impact culture
  2. Better understand how wellness strategy is evolving and how high-performing organizations can impact core goals such as top talent attraction/retention, employee engagement, and workplace productivity with a comprehensive approach to wellbeing
  3. Articulate what it means to move beyond a physical-based wellness program and the value of embracing a “total health” approach; case studies and data will be used to support this conversation
  4. Walk away with ideas that can be implemented immediately – we will provide a set of solutions/strategies to begin making a change in wellness strategy; these ideas will include little to no cost options

Session Description:

What if everything you thought you knew about wellness is evolving? As new data comes to light regarding the minimal impact of stand-alone physical-based wellness programs, organizations are beginning to evolve their strategy. In the past, it was considered cutting-edge to have a wellness initiative tied to claims analysis and fitness. This is no longer true. High-performing organizations are realizing that the key to positively impacting long-term workplace productivity, attracting and retaining top talent and engaging employees resides with changing culture.
