What does “wellness” mean to your organization? How do you embed wellness into your employee experience and culture? In this opening session, we’ll explore the strategies you need to prioritize and implement to create a wellness-driven organization, including:

  • Developing processes to identify employee wants and needs.
  • Auditing existing programs that may not have been defined previously as “wellness.”
  • Establishing a diverse employee committee to assist in identifying strategies and priorities.
  • Getting leadership commitment and buy-in for programs; understanding the costs.

Designing a Scalable Employee Wellness Offering

Once wellness programs and initiatives are determined for your organization, you must be able to work with multiple departments, healthcare companies and benefits brokers to scale the offerings, and most importantly, not be working in silos. With dispersed workforces, you must meet your employees where they are, so technology will be key to launch your programs. In this session, we’ll walk through next steps in scaling your program and:

  • Developing a strategic and actionable that prioritizes the most critical areas to address.
  • The importance of your benefits brokers for resources.
  • Identifying an achievable and impactful suite of services for your employees that can grow with your company.
  • Finding the right mixture of tools and technologies to launch your programs organization-wide.
3:15-3:30 p.m.

3:30-4:00 p.m.
Communicating, Executing and Measuring Your Wellness Plan

Communications and HR pros will deliver messaging around your wellness programs internally, and measure employee satisfaction around the programs. Messaging will need to be strategically cascaded to people managers, and comms and HR will have to take the lead in a feedback loop format. In this closing session, we’ll talk about:

  • The importance of working across departments from HR to comms to ensure marketing of programs internally.
  • How to engage people leaders and individuals to encourage program use.
  • Incorporating wellness program satisfaction as part of employee experience surveys.
