Description
Welcome to the Institute for Human Resources for Employee Wellness! This introductory session will give you an overview of the Institute for Human Resources - Employee Wellness certification program. In a nutshell, the Institute has been designed to provide HR professionals responsible for their employees' health and well-being with the opportunity to gain certification in this particular field. What is employee wellness? It encompasses injury prevention, battling obesity, disease prevention, how technology is affecting wellness (with online challenges and monitoring), using social media, employee engagement (do you need to use incentive/reward programs), biometric data, outsourcing vs. internal programs, ROI and more. The Institute for Human Resources (IHR) Employee Wellness certification program launched on September 14 & 15, 2011 with a two-day virtual event and the second event was held on February 1 & 2, 2012. To date, over 3,700 HR professionals have registered for our programs so far.

The purpose of this session is to provide you with an update on the webcast topics and speakers that will be presenting over these two days. In addition, for those of you who have not participated in one of these events in the past, you will be shown how to register for any newly-added webcasts and make use of the virtual Exhibit Hall, where you can increase your knowledge on product and service suppliers in the employee wellness space. You will also learn how to network with your peers by visiting the lounge.

All of these webcasts have been approved for HRCI recertification credits (the only exception being this introductory webcast). This short webcast will provide you with complete information on what is required to obtain certification from the Institute for Human Resources.

The management of this Institute would not be possible without the input from the Advisory Board. This session will also introduce all the members of the Advisory Board to you.

A calendar of future events will be shared so that members can pre-register now to add the dates to their calendars.
You will learn about the opportunity to become certified with the Institute for Human Resources and what other HR Verticals are available for either yourself or your colleagues. There will be an introduction to this Institute's Advisory Board and faculty which ensures that all courses and educational components are state-of-the-art and relevant to current trends in the industry. We will also give an overview of the speakers and their topics. You will be given guidance on how to chat online with colleagues and access the virtual exhibit hall which includes floors for our Sponsors, speakers and suppliers, prior to and during the entire two day event. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have, as it relates to the overall program, prior to the event's commencement.
Don’t forget, this is a great opportunity to converse with our industry experts. Looking forward to your participation!
