Ask most employers what worksite wellness means to them and most of the answers contain the following: onsite screenings, walking programs, biggest loser type programs, flu shots, healthy eating policies, tobacco us policies, on-site gyms, etc. While these programs were (and some continue to be) mainstays and important pieces of worksite wellness programming in the past, recently there has been an encouraging evolution that is starting to interest and attract employers. Employers are realizing they need to do more to truly have an impact on employee wellbeing.
This presentation will dive into and explore different opportunities that employers have to impact eh overall well-being of their employees and share ideas on how to implement these within your workforce.
1. Define worksite wellness/population health management
2. Identify changes in the industry over the past 5-10 years
3. Establish actionable items that you can implement to have a positive impact on employee well-being.
