Description
Without a dramatic change in course, rising health care costs, primarily due to the prevalence of chronic disease and obesity, will ultimately overwhelm us – and companies are paying the brunt of these costs. Learn about how ALL of us have the power to change this course of events, beginning with ourselves.

Our health and well-being largely comes down to the choices we make. In fact, if each of us were to do three simple things: eat healthy, get enough exercise and stop smoking, we could prevent about 75% of the major chronic diseases we face today, such as heart disease, type II diabetes and even some forms of cancer. What many of us may not know, however, is just how much our personal choices matter to those around us. In fact, new research suggests that our choices – positive or negative – influence not only our friends, but also our friends’ friends and even our friends’ friends’ friends! Learn how you can take action to improve your own health and well-being – and in doing so, how you can become a “secret agent” for change in your workplace, your home and even your community.

With skyrocketing health care costs, every company is struggling to figure out ways to cut down on medical costs, along with related costs such as absenteeism and reduced productivity. Companies simply can no longer afford NOT to have worksite wellness. In this webinar, we’ll break down how chronic diseases are preceded by health risks, which in turn are preceded by health behaviors. You’ll learn simple ways to improve your own health and well-being – and how to bring this to your workplace. This webinar is a must for anyone who is responsible for developing and/or implementing worksite wellness initiatives.
Who Should Participate
Any HR Professional who is involved with worksite wellness programming
What You Will Learn
  1. Identify the key elements to enhanced health and well-being and simple ways to put these into action.
  2. Clarify why your individual choices have a profound influence on your friends, co-workers, families and even your communities.
  3. Clarify why employee wellness impacts the bottom line and come away with simple ways to bring wellness into the workplace.
