Description
*Please note that this webcast doesn't qualify for HRCI or IHR credits.

Look at the statistics and you realize your workforce is unhealthy: 62% of employees are overweight, among those, 26% are obese. Additionally, 33% of employees show signs of clinical depression. This workshop will introduce human resources staff and managers to the benefits of worksite wellness programming and simple ways to engage employees in programs and initiatives.
Worksites have much to gain by offering wellness programming as these programs impact both the top line and bottom line of organizations; top line revenue increases via reduced absenteeism and presenteeism, and bottom line costs are reduced through the containment of healthcare costs. Corporate wellness programs are critical for addressing the health of their employees and their families, resulting in significantly greater physical and mental well-being.
The key to impacting the health of an entire workforce is to implement comprehensive, results-oriented programs and policies. Results-oriented programs include multiple components, including policies, benefits, on-site programming and high-touch lifestyle change programs. Further, Return-on-Investment (ROI) can be enhanced by including dependents in the programming as they account for 60% of healthcare costs. This seminar will focus on four key objectives for improving health and reducing absenteeism and presenteeism:
1.       Promote physical activity for employees at work and at home;
2.       Foster healthy eating at work and at home;
3.       Reduce and manage stress; and
4.       Promote emotional well-being and reduce substance abuse.

Webinar participants will be able to analyze their own wellness programming, identify gaps and solutions, and develop comprehensive models for an effective wellness program. We will also discuss ways to reach and engage more employees and their families in wellness programming.

Who Should Participate
This workshop is designed for human resources staff as well as managers responsible for health programming, maximizing performance or reducing costs.
What You Will Learn
Participants will: • Learn about strategies that have been successfully implemented in small, medium and large corporations • Review a comprehensive, research-based model for worksite health programming • Use ConnectWell tools to identify health needs and gaps in their own wellness strategies
