In this era of global competition, organizations need every person functioning at his or her best. When team members are healthy and well, the result is reduced benefits costs, increased innovation, retention of top talent, and a winning culture where people are well, so they do well.
Employers have offered wellness incentive programs for a number of years. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) expanded the potential for these programs in order to encourage healthy choices and reduce health care costs. Wellness incentive programs give participants rewards for meeting certain health-related goals, such as losing weight, flu shots or meeting health requirements.
HIPAA 1996 limited rewards available to participants. ACA legislation increases those awards and affects both individual and group health plan participants. Our ACA Wellness Incentives webinar will provide information on:
• Two types for wellness programs
• Five wellness requirements
• Gray areas
• Action plan
Employers may be able to curtail the rising health care costs when they offer wellness incentives.
Register now to learn if your wellness program is in compliance, what changes to make and what you need to do for 2014 and beyond.
Many employers reduced their workforces to remain viable during the recession. As a result, they required high productivity and performance of their employees. Now employers need to retain their key contributors who possess important intellectual capital while attracting new talent to the organization to remain competitive as the job market provides more opportunities. Horizons Workforce Consulting, a division of Bright Horizons, in collaboration with Dr. Russell Matthews, from Bowling Green State University, completed a study in 2013 to demonstrate the impact on these critical business outcomes when employers provide child and elder care supports to their employees. Data will be shared regarding the impact of these supports on recruitment, retention, productivity, engagement, return to work after family leave, and well-being. Case studies will also be shared to bring the data to life.

Workplace grief costs U.S. businesses billions of dollars a year in reduced productivity and increased errors and accidents, yet the word grief rarely shows up in reports. In The Hidden Annual Cost of Grief in America’s Workplace 2003 report, the keyword in the title of this report is the word "hidden." It is just that factor that has caused the problem to escalate to now unimaginable proportions and it is the essential reason that it is getting worse rather than better. In this presentation we will address the definition of grief, the grief/workplace connection, the cost of "presenteeism" to corporations and we will discover how managers and other employees can support coworkers who have experienced personal loss.
