Description
Considerable confusion persists in terms of what employee health improvement really is and how it should be measured and managed as part of an integrated human resource strategy. In addition the need to be an employer of choice, the growing health care cost and the economic downturn have promoted widespread interest in corporate health, wellness and productivity programs. But how do we know that we are on the right track?

Effective workplace wellness programs focus on an integrated multifaceted change management process that is directly related to the business outcomes. The prevention of sickness and absence, and at the same time promotion of employee health are key outcomes for them. Thus, tracking and evaluating employer sponsored wellness programs are warranted.

In the Workplace Wellness Program Best Practices session we focus on global benchmarked workplace health, wellness and productivity programs as they are evaluated against the ten most important international best practices. It addresses international trends that incorporate program design, strategy development, organizational change, program management and the evaluation of employee health, wellness and productivity outcomes.

Based on real workplace wellness program case studies we address mission critical aspects that contribute to the success of any employee health promotion program. We share what thriving organizations do to develop, implement and manage their workplace health and wellness programs so that sustainable stakeholder value and triple bottom line results are created.

In the Workplace Wellness Program Best Practices session the speaker will cover the three most important implementation wellness program strategies and the most common pitfalls that international and national organizations should take cognizance of.

  • Health Promotion Managers

May want to present in a more understandable manner - a lot of big titles vs actual how to gather or evaluate. Give us the meat of the information in a more understandable way that can be implemented. 3 / 5
