“The Employee Experience”
The problem most wellness programs were designed to solve related to growing chronic health problems, unabated health care costs, and the connection between poor health practices and impaired productivity. These continue as formidable challenges for our field, but we are also confronting new and equally compelling problems related to a disengaged workforce and a rapidly emerging “gig economy.” While many industries are well known for their deep reliance on the voice of their consumers, employee health and well-being initiatives have arguably been oriented toward a business case responsive to the needs of the employer. Does the movement “from wellness to well-being” signal a shift away from costly employee risks to the organizational value added if we better tap employee assets, needs, and diversity?
Our CEO, Heather Provino, will be attending this winter think tank. She'd love to share her thoughts and visions for the future of well-being. With many years in the wellness/well-being space and a passion for the employee's experience, you'll want to hear more!
